Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “What will be Rodrigo Duterte’s legacy?| Inside Story” – below is their description.

Philippine presidents can only serve a single six-year term in office.

That’s created a bit of an obstacle for president Rodrigo Dueterte – who many had speculated– was hoping to run for the vice presidency.

But he has just announced he is retiring from politics altogether.

A recent poll had suggested many Filipinos disapproved of his reported bid for the vice presidency.

But how has Duterte’s time in office shaped politics?

And will his successor keep his policies?
