Duterte announces that he might run for presidency due to the criticisms thrown at him.

DAVAO, Philippines -- As the 2016 presidential election slowly inches closer, the number of politicians that might be potential candidates are also increasing. One of them is Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who seemed to have changed his mind on running for presidency.

For years, Duterte has stood by his decision of not running for any national post in the 2016 national elections. However, in a recent interview, Duterte mentioned that he’s already considering the possibility of running for president due to the criticisms thrown at him.

Aside from his announcement, he also expressed a warning towards Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and former Commission on Human Rights chairwoman Etta Rosales, saying that if he might ever land as president, he will not hesitate to expose the controversies surrounding them.

"I've always said that God will somehow enlighten me. I've been asking, I've been praying: 'God, I do not like it. I do not need it. Pag ginusto mo, you give me a cause to do it.' Pero ito ngayon, well I am thinking about it, really. Pinag-iisipan ko na, na kung may sampung, o 100 people like De Lima campaigning for me, and Etta Rosales, (expletive) mananalo ako niyan. Mananalo ako! Etta Rosales and De Lima will provide the edge.”

Earlier this week, it can be remembered that Duterte made national headlines upon admitting his relation towards the ‘Davao Death Squad’ which is infamous for allegedly handling the executions of the criminals in Davao City.

Due to this, a feud between Duterte and De Lima arise as the latter criticized Duterte for his extra-judicial killings and insisting that Duterte should be held criminally-liable for his killings.
