Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said, “We’re not gonna be paralyzed by any survey. Our commitment is there to protect the welfare of the Filipino people.”
This statement from the presidential voice was made amid the recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey saying President Aquino’s public satisfaction rating reached another all time low. According to SWS, 56 percent from 1200 adult Filipino are satisfied with Aquino’s performance, 26 percent dissatisfied and 18 percent undecided.
“It’s an interview of 1,200 respondents, but does it mean it’s the end-all and be-all of the effect on his endorsement? No, it’s not. Because we will move forward, we will continue to push the program of this administration,” Lacierda added.
“What’s the talk about being a lame duck? Everyone is looking for his anointment,” he emphasized.
“You are looking at it from one particular quarter. You have to look at it from the overall performance of the administration. Some people who have benefited from a program in government will say otherwise,” Edwin Lacierda explained.
