Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte have been urged to run for the presidency in 2016. Earlier this year, his answer was a firm no. He said that he doesn't have the money to use for his candidacy. But in his recent interviews he has shown interest in running for the said position.

In one of his interviews the tough-talking mayor said that once elected as president he would impose nationwide ban on overspeeding, smoking and midnight drinking.
