Malacañang has downplayed the result of the latest survey showing more Filipinos consider themselves poor.

“Yung survey natin di ba there was a time na umakyat, meron naman tayo na bumababa. So tlagang nafluctuate ang sentimyento ng tao depende sa kalakaran na nakakabalot sa kanila,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said over dzIQ.

Panelo also expressed confidence that economic managers are working to alleviate poverty.

“Ang ating mga economic managers magagaling sila e. They were able to neutralize the high inflation rate sa panahon na mataas nakagawa sila ng kaparaanan para makontrol nila. So, siguro alam na rin nila ang kanilang gagawin,” he said.

“Marami tayong mga incoming projects. Sunod-sunod na magumpisa na, o eh di syempre maraming trabaho. Maraming mga kababayan na mahihirap na magkakaroon ng pagkakataon na gumanda ang kanilang buhay.”

Results of the latest Social Weather Stations survey, conducted from December 13 to 16, 2019, showed that self-rated poverty among Filipinos rose by 12 percent from 42 percent in September last year to 54 percent in December.
