Amid ratings dip, Duterte admin to continue serving public interest—Roque
“Unmindful of the distraction and political noise,” Malacañang on Sunday said the executive branch would continue to serve the “best interest” of the public by “bringing comfortable life to disadvantaged and marginalized families.”
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque issued the statement in light of the first quarter 2018 Social Weather Stations Survey (SWS) survey results for the Duterte Cabinet.
The latest SWS survey result showed that the ratings for the Duterte administration’s Cabinet went down by 10 points, from +38 to +28 on a quarter-on-quarter basis and by four points in a year-on-year basis.
But the grade remains high especially in comparison to the previous administration, which peaked at +33.
Roque said many agencies “have made significant strides in their respective areas and fields.”
He added that the departments under the executive branch would “continue to serve the nation and the best interest of our people by bringing comfortable life to disadvantaged and marginalized families, unmindful of the distraction and political noise.”
“We shall therefore work double time in highlighting policies and programs of the current administration that have the most impact to the lives of our countrymen,” Roque added. /je
