President Rodrigo Duterte remains the most trusted among the top five officials of government despite criticism of the administration’s lukewarm response to the sinking of a Filipino boat in the West Philippine Sea.

Results of the Pulse Asia survey conducted in June showed Duterte’s trust and approval ratings were both at 85 percent.

Only three percent of the respondents said they disapproved of his work, and 11% were undecided.

The survey, conducted from June 24 to 30, also showed that majority of Filipinos approve of the performances of Vice President Leni Robredo and Senate President Vicente Sotto III at 55 percent and 77 percent, respectively.

Close to half of the respondents, or 47 percent, disapproved of the performance of House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Arroyo’s approval rating was a dismal 26 percent while 49 percent of the respondents expressed “small/no trust” in her leadership.

Meanwhile, survey results showed 41 percent were “appreciative of or undecided“ about the performance oc Supreme Court Justice Lucas Bersamin.

Among the news developments that happened during the survey period was the sinking of a Philippine vessel by a Chinese boat near Recto Bank, which left 22 Filipino fishermen adrift at sea.

The government filed a diplomatic protest over the incident before the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on June 12, but Duterte said he was open to China’s proposal for a joint investigation.
