RODRIGO DUTERTE, the strongman mayor of the Philippines' southern city of Davao for two decades, is set to become the country's new president. Global Times commented on Tuesday:

Regularly compared to the controversial US presidential hopeful Donald Trump, the 71-year-old Duterte has promised to end drug crime in three to six months and improve security by executing 100,000 suspected criminals if elected as the Philippine leader.

His proposed hard-line policies, which are very different from those of the outgoing administration, have captured the public's attention.
