Later on, speaking at Mr Pacquiao's 39th birthday bash in Manila on Sunday, Mr Duterte said the boxing champion was capable of becoming the country's next president.

President Duterte made the comments during an LGBT community gathering in Davao.

"Couple this with a communications industry heavily compromised by a Chinese presence, it is not entirely alarmist to envision our nation as a Chinese province, and Filipinos as second-class citizens of China, in the near future", she pointed out.

The bill approved by Congress last week is expected to raise 92 billion pesos (US$1.8 billion) in revenues in its first year, less than the Department of Finance had hoped to raise to fund the administration's ambitious infrastructure overhaul plan.

Duterte, whose allies control both houses of Congress, did not specify how same-sex marriage would be legalised.

In 2009, the Commission on Human Rights then under Leila de Lima, conducted a probe on extrajudicial killings following reports that at least 800 persons had been summarily executed in the city from the late 1990s by a band referred to as "Davao Death Squad" and their later copycats. "I think more than in the past years", said Romualdez.
