Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte wants federalism so badly he wants to see it in place before he dies.

“I would be happy to die kung makita ko ang federalism sa Pilipinas,” Duterte said during the Federalism Forum at the GMA Gym at the Terminal Complex in Marawi City on May 5.

Duterte, looming as a presidential candidate in 2016, has been going around the country to promote a shift in form of government from presidential to federal as a cure to the country’s multifarious woes ranging from corruption to uncontrolled criminality and the unresolved Moro problem in Mindanao and the communist insurgency.
