Duterte as ‘most trusted’ among 4 most recent presidents—survey says

by | TOP STORIES

Malacanang welcomed a recent Pulse Asia survey showing President Rodrigo Duterte having the highest public approval and trust ratings out of the four most recent chief executives.

“Ito po ay magsisilbing inspirasyon sa ating Pangulo at sa mga miyembro ng Gabinete na mas lalo pang galingan ang trabaho at tutukan ang mga reporma na ipinangako ng ating mahal na Pangulo nung kampanya noong 2016,” Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said in a radio interview Saturday, November 11.

As of September 2017, President Duterte got an 80 percent trust and approval rating, higher than any rating received by his predecessors Joseph Estrada, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, and Benigno Aquino III.

Andanar, who arrived from Viet Nam last night, also gave a recap of the President’s visit to Da Nang, where the Chief Executive pushed for equal opportunities among nations.

President Duterte met with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang and congratulated him over Viet Nam’s successful hosting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit 2017.

The President also met with Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill who will host the APEC next year. The Philippines-PNG bilateral trade relations was discussed by the two leaders, according to Andanar.

President Duterte also had a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin with the two leaders tackling political, security and economic cooperation.

The Philippine leader expressed his gratitude to Putin for Russia’s support in areas of defense and security. Russia sent weapons to the Philippines while the government was fighting ISIS-linked Maute group in Marawi City.
