Palace: Excellent trust rating affirms people’s faith in Duterte
Malacañang on Tuesday assured Filipinos that it was committed to deliver good governance following the “excellent” trust rating of President Rodrigo Duterte in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.
Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said “the Filipino people deserve no less.”
“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,” he said in a statement.
In the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, Duterte got a net trust rating of +76, a three point drop from his +79 in June.
Andanar said the drop was “not significant to indicate a change of people’s sentiment given the margin of error of each survey.”
The Palace official said the President “enjoying excellent trust rating clearly affirms the Filipino people’s faith and confidence in his leadership.”
“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.
“This also validates the people’s full support for his reform agenda of “tunay na pagbabago” or real change that swept him to the presidency in the May election,” he added. IDL/rga
