Saying electricity is expensive, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said criminals especially drug lords and corrupt government officials should be hanged and not burned on an electric chair.
They should be executed by hanging, said Duterte on Wednesday in Ozanis City before a huge crowd attending his Listening Tour on Federalism.
Why should I spend for electricity? Criminals should be hanged with a barbed wire, he said sparking loud laughter.
Duterte is being pushed to run for President partly for his famous iron-fist anti-drug and anti-corruption campaign.
