Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte said he would retire from politics

Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte said he would retire from politics, although he was not eligible for next year’s elections.
Duterte said last month that he would run for Vice President in 2022. The national constitution prohibits him from his second term as president.
But now he says he will retire as “the overwhelming feeling of the Philippines is that I am not qualified.”
The move came about speculation that his daughter could be elected president. The controversial “strongman” Duterte came to power in 2016 on a platform to fight crime and rectify the country’s drug crisis.
In the five years since his election, critics say he encouraged police to carry out thousands of extrajudicial killings of suspects in what he called the “war on drugs.”
Under the Philippine Constitution, the president can only serve a six-year term.
Sara Duterte-Carpio, daughter of Dutertes, now the mayor of the southern city of Davao, delivered various messages about the election to senior officials.
She said she wouldn’t run in the race last month because she and her father agreed that only one of them would run in her next year’s elections. However, this has led to all polls conducted this year.

Duterte announced his surprising retirement at a venue in Manila where he was expected to register his candidacy.
He said becoming vice president would be a violation of the law, a constitutional violation to avoid the spirit of the constitution.
When Duterte announced that he would act first, there was widespread speculation that he would look for a politically weak driver to rule from the second.
As Vice President, he also publicly reflected that he was exempt from prosecution by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for leading a brutal “drug war” that killed thousands of people in the country. However, it was not clear if he had impunity.

According to Amnesty International, more than 7,000 people were killed by police or unknown armed perpetrators during the first six months of President Dutales.
In June, ICC prosecutors called for a full investigation of the Philippine drug war killings, saying they may have been guilty of crimes against humanity.
As mev. If Duterte Carpio is elected president, she will probably protect her father from criminal accusations in the Philippines and ICC prosecutors.
