MANILA, Philippines — Apparently elated over a recent favorable survey result, Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez on Thursday promised to work harder to approve pending bills supporting the 8-point socioeconomic agenda of the current administration “as a token of gratitude.”

“It is heartening to know that a majority of our people appreciate our earnest effort to pass measures to create jobs and business opportunities, provide assistance to the poor, and build a better future for all Filipinos,” he said in a statement.


Romualdez received a 51 percent approval rating in the recent Pulse Asia survey, with only 12 percent of the 1,200 adult respondents polled disapproving of his performance as Speaker of the House of Representatives.


“As a token of our gratitude, we will work even harder to pass the pending bills to advance the 8-point socioeconomic agenda of President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. designed to uplift the lives of our people,” he added.

Both President Marcos and Vice President Sara Duterte got high approval ratings in the same survey, with 78 percent and 83 percent, respectively, saying they were satisfied with what the country’s top two leaders have done so far.

Only five percent disapproved of Marcos’ performance during his first seven months as President, while only four percent were dissatisfied with Duterte’s.

Aside from Romualdez, other ranking government officials received relatively good scores in the latest Pulse Asia survey. Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri got a 51 percent approval rating while Supreme Court Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo got 43 percent.

Romuladez then said that the good rating he received could also be attributed to the hard work done by legislators of the 19th Congress.


“(The surveys are a) testament to the hard work and dedication of our legislators in serving the Filipino people during these challenging times,” he said.

“As House leader, I am deeply honored, humbled, and grateful to Filipino people for their trust and confidence in the House of Representatives,” he added.

A Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey released on April 6 showed the House of Representatives received +56 net score among adult respondents polled which is considered a good satisfaction rating.
