Philippine President-elect Rodrigo Duterte said he will seek to return the death penalty, in his first comments to reporters since last week's election.

He added that he would also seek to give security forces shoot-to-kill powers for suspects who evade arrest and those involved in organized crime.

It is unclear how easily he could enact such proposals, but analysts credit his success to his tough stance on crime.

He is set to be sworn into office on 30th June for a term of 6 years.

While official election results have not yet been announced, Duterte has an unassailable lead.
