MALACANANG yesterday said that the “excellent” trust rating President Rodrigo Duterte received in a recent poll would further motivate the administration to push through with the reforms it introduced in its first 100 days.
Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar in a statement to Palace reporters said that Duterte’s +76 public trust rating, in a survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS), affirmed the Filipinos “faith and confidence” in his leadership although the President’s grade fell three points down.
“While there is a variance in his June (+79) and September (+76) ratings, this is not significant to indicate a change of people’s sentiment given the margin of error of each survey,” Andanar said.
“This will further motivate his administration to continue what he started in his first 100 days—fighting illegal drugs and crime, combating terrorism, curbing corruption, and sustaining the momentum of economic growth,” Andanar said.
The survey results were also another proof that the people continue to support Duterte’s quest for “tunay na pagbabago” in the country, he added.
Andanar said that the “Duterte administration is committed to good governance anchored on the twin principles of transparency and accountability that will lead to lasting peace, political stability and inclusive economic progress in the years ahead. The Filipino people deserve no less”
