Phl government’s satisfaction ratings decline
“The administration remains undeterred in its commitment to serve the country and its citizens,” Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said, commenting on the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, which showed the current government satisfaction rating at +29 percent. The survey was released on Monday.
Based on SWS records, the government’s satisfaction ratings peaked at +66 percent in June last year, and have since declined to +56 percent in September 2013, to +51 percent in December 2013, and further to +45 percent last March.
Lacierda said historically, the +29 percent satisfaction rating is still higher than the lowest ratings attained by previous administrations.
“You can trace the lowest point of each administration—present and previous—and it is still by far the highest among the lowest of the administrations, based on the surveys conducted by SWS,” he added.
The SWS Net Satisfaction with General Performance on the National Administration showed former President Corazon Aquino’s lowest satisfaction rating at -5 percent; President Fidel Ramos’ lowest rating at -3 percent; President Joseph Estrada’s at -8 percent; and President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s at -45 percent.
“We are not going to be paralyzed by any survey. Our commitment is to protect the welfare of the Filipino people,” Lacierda said.
