Filipinos have voted in elections that are set to have a profound effect on their future.

Rodrigo Duterte, a maverick mayor and self-confessed killer known as "the punisher", is leading the race to be voted president.

His supporters say he is a man of action who will tackle three big voter concerns: crime, corruption and inequality.

His critics fear he will return the Philippines to dictatorship.

The son of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos could become vice president.

How has voter dissatisfaction turned Philippine politics on its head?
