Ferdinand Marcos has been sworn in as the country’s new president.

Marcos’s inauguration marks a stunning political comeback, 36 years after the elder Marcos was toppled and forced into exile in a popular uprising.

He won a rare landslide victory in last month’s presidential election.

The new President succeeds Rodrigo Duterte, who gained international notoriety for his deadly drug war.
