Palace ecstatic over Aquino’s ‘very good’ satisfaction rating
MANILA, Philippines— Malacañang gave itself a pat on the back on Thursday after the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed that Super Typhoon “Yolanda” victims were satisfied with the performance of President Benigno Aquino III during and after its devastation.
“It is gratifying that those who suffered greatly appreciate what their President and their government have done to ease their pain and alleviate their plight despite the shortcomings and challenges still being hurdled,” Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said Thursday in a press briefing.
Coloma added that Malacañang is inspired by the manifestation of support to the government’s continuing efforts to help them rebuild their lives and build disaster-resilient communities.
A recent Social Weather Station survey conducted from December 11-16 revealed that Aquino III got 73 percent or “very good” satisfaction rating from victims of “Yolanda.”
“Yolanda” devastated the Visayas in late last year that left more than six thousand people dead and many more homeless.
