While the results are not technically official, the group is accredited by the Commission on Elections to conduct a "quick count." Final results are expected Tuesday.

Duterte — who has been dubbed the "Donald Trump of the East" — has run an extremely controversial campaign. As we reported, the 71-year-old made headlines when he made a rape joke about Australian lay minister Jacqueline Hamill at a rally.

He has also been accused of making homophobic and violent remarks — including the promotion of death squads. He has become so infamous, John Oliver did a piece on him for Last Week Tonight.
