DAVAO CITY, Philippines – President-elect Rodrigo Duterte appeared before the public on Monday, May 16 – his first since winning the elections held Monday, May 9.

On Sunday night, the president-elect met with his transition team and some candidates for top positions in his administration. Former defense secretary and 2010 presidential candidate Gilbert Teodoro Jr, widely thought to be one of Duterte’s top picks for defense chief, also arrived in Davao City on Monday.

Earlier, Duterte revealed his top choices to lead the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP). His camp also laid down an 8-point economic agenda last Thursday, May 12.
