DAVAO CITY mayor Rodrigo Duterte is poised to become the new president of the Philippines. Beijing Times commented on Thursday:

Winning the Philippine presidential election will be just the beginning of Duterte's new political adventure. He has to deliver on his promises to voters while dealing with a slew of tricky challenges at home and abroad left by outgoing President Benigno Aquino III.

This is not going to be easy. Often compared to the pugnacious US presidential candidate Donald Trump, Duterte did manage to persuade many Philippine voters, who are desperate for "a change", to believe that he is the long-awaited game-changer.
