MANILA, Philippines – The rise in the satisfaction rating of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration showed the Filipinos’ “unshakeable trust” in the Chief Executive and his government, Malacañang said Tuesday.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo issued the statement a day after a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed the administration’s net satisfaction rating rising by 16 points from +50 in September 2018 to +66 in December 2018.”

“The Palace considers this increase in satisfaction rating as a vote of public confidence and a demonstration of the people’s unshakeable trust to the present administration, which the polling firm classified as ‘very good,'” Panelo said in a statement.

Aside from his “very good” satisfaction rating, the SWS survey showed that Duterte was rated “excellent” in two of the 17  specific performance subjects — promoting women’s right, which garnered a net satisfaction rating of +71; and building and maintenance of public works, which obtained a net satisfaction rating of +70.

The President was also rated “very good” in helping the poor (+68); protecting human rights (+62) and reconstructing Marawi City (+60).

“These figures are loud and clear repudiations of the critics and detractors of PRRD who have described him as misogynistic, anti-poor and anti-human rights, and who have taken turns in questioning the Build-Build-Build Infrastructure Program and lambasting the rehabilitation and reconstruction of Marawi,” Panelo said.

“While the Administration never impelled the vocal minority from expressing their dissent, it is time they finally realize that a sizeable but silent majority has paid no attention to their endless tirades against PRRD and the Administration, as well as its policies, particularly with respect to the aforesaid matters,” he added.

As Duterte enters into his third year in office, Panelo said “the Filipinos can rest assured that we would not be lulled into complacency while we continue to roll out the programs and services he started in bringing a comfortable life for all under a peaceful and corrupt-free environment.” /cbb
