Malacañang dismissed on Friday as “mathematically impossible” the claim of IBON Foundation that the Duterte administration created an average of only 81,000 jobs annually in the period 2017-2018.

This was contrary to the report of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) and the Department of Labor and Employment that the government generated around 826,000 jobs for the country in 2018 alone.

In a statement, spokesman Salvador Panelo, citing PSA data, said the employment rate under the present government “remains very good registering as high as 95.3 percent in October 2016 to a low of 93.4 percent in January 2017.”

Panelo wanted to know how IBON arrived at its figures, he added.

“One must also ask if the said foundation is inept or just maliciously reckless to degrade the achievements of the President,” the official said.
