MANILA – Malacañang on Tuesday welcomed the higher net satisfaction ratings earned by three top government officials, stressing that this was proof that people believe that their performance has improved.
Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo made this comment after the net satisfaction rating of Vice President Leni Robredo, Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano increased further during the last quarter of 2019 based on the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.
“Ibig sabihin, ang pananaw ng mga natanungan nakita nila na nag-i-improve ‘yung performance ng mga taong ‘yun (It means the respondents believe that the performance of those persons is improving). Good for them,” Panelo said in a Palace press briefing.
The latest survey showed 56 percent of Filipinos were satisfied with Robredo’s performance while 23 percent were dissatisfied, giving Robredo a +36 net satisfaction rating which is deemed as “good.”
Robredo’s +36 net satisfaction rating was a three-point increase from her +33 rating in October 2019.
