Gatchalian says it’s up to Duterte to prove he’s indeed most trust president
Sen. Win Gatchalian called on President Duterte to prove the people right in giving him the highest average approval and trust ratings among the four most recent Philippine presidents.
“It is now up to the President and his administration to reward the faith of the people by achieving the genuine change he has promised,” Gatchalian, an ally of the President, said in a text message to reporters.
Pulse Asia said Duterte’s 91 percent trust and approval was the best among former Presidents – Benigno Aquino III, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Joseph Estrada.
In its most recent Pulse Asia survey released last October, Duterte’s approval and trust ratings fell by only two points and one point respectively compared to his ratings in June.
“These high ratings are a testament to the unwavering faith of the people in Pres. Duterte’s vision for the country,” Gatchalian said.
While the basic problems such as poverty and impunity still persist in the country, Gatchalian said Filipinos obviously continue to trust the President and approve of his work and advocacies.
