Malacañang on Sunday welcomed the latest SWS survey results, showing a +50 net satisfaction rating for President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Nagpapasalamat kami sa ating mga kababayan na patuloy na nasisiyahan sa Administrasyong Duterte,” according to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr.

Amid the rising prices of food and fuel, Roque said that Duterte’s public satisfaction remains “very good.”

A survey conducted from September 15 to 23 revealed that 65 percent of adult Filipinos were satisfied with the Duterte administration.

Fifteen percent said they are dissatisfied, while 19 percent were undecided.

“Regardless of the numbers, we assure everyone that the Administration is working double time to ensure prices of basic goods become stable as we cushion the impact of higher inflation,” Roque said.

“May mga hakbang nang isinagawa ang pamahalaan, kasama na ang pag-angkat ng bigas at pagsibak ng mga ilang tauhan na may kinalaman sa pagkawala ng libo-libong sako ng bigas, para masolusyunan ang kakulungan ng suplay sa pamilihan na siyang nagpapataas ng presyo ng mga bilihin,” he added.
