Despite being 2nd most trusted exec, Aquino ‘inspired’ to serve Filipinos better

/ 02:24 PM June 22, 2015

Malacañang said Monday the improvement on the trust and approval ratings of President Benigno Aquino III serves as an inspiration for him to serve his “bosses” better.

Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said that the results of the recent Pulse Asia survey, which showed Aquino’s approval rating jump to 54 percent from 38 percent and his trust rating now at 50 percent from 36 percent, is an indication of the continued trust of the Filipinos to the administration.

“This (Pulse Asia survey results) is a testament to the people’s confidence in the President’s integrity and reliability, and the firm resolve of this administration that no one should be left behind in our quest toward inclusive growth,” Lacierda said in a statement.

The Palace official then elaborated the successes achieved by the administration’s adherence to its “straight path” policy which include  better job opportunities, enhanced poverty alleviation programs, universal health coverage, increased educational investments and infrastructure projects.

He said that with a year left to the presidency, the survey results should guide voters to pick Aquino’s successor which will continue the reforms he initiated.

“With roughly one year left for this administration, it is the Filipino people’s support which continues to inspire us to serve them better, and it is their discernment in future elections that will ensure the continuity of what we have done as we continue to tread ‘Daang Matuwid’,” he added.

According to the results of the Pulse Asia survey released on Monday, Aquino trailed behind Vice President Jejomar Binay for being the most trusted government official. Binay gained a 57 percent trust rating and a 58 percent approval rating.

Aquino’s survey jump is the most significant among the top officials included in the poll.

Last March, Aquino suffered a nosedive in his trust and approval ratings following the botched counter-terrorist operation in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on Jan. 25 which killed at least 72 people. AU
