High ratings for Pres. Duterte : ‘NOT surprising’- Panelo

It was expected and not surprising that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has the continuing trust of Filipinos to their Chief Executive.

Employees working closely with the Chief Executive can attest the works he clocks in, day in and day out that has translated to being the most trusted government official based on the latest survey released by Pulse Asia, and presidential spokesman and presidential legal counsel Atty.Salvador Panelo said it is “not surprising.”

Panelo also said Duterte’s consistent high approval and trust ratings are proof of the people’s confidence in him “despite the criticisms thrown at him by his detractors.”
“Not surprising. It keeps on increasing, simply because the President is a very transparent leader,” Panelo said.
“His political will shows in every measure or step he has undertaken. It shows how sincere he is, and the people are satisfied with his method of governance,” he added.
The President has an 85 percent approval and trust rating, miles ahead of Vice President Leni Robredo (55 percent)based on the latest Pulse Asia survey. 
In the same poll, Senate President Vicente Sotto III got 77 percent, former House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo had 22 percent, and Supreme Court Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin garnered 41 percent.
“People keep on expressing their support to awaken the critics and the detractors from their slumber,” Panelo said.
“All the criticisms against this President relative to drugs vis-à-vis the West Philippine Sea and other issues of national interest are all wrong – no basis,” he added.
Panelo is so assured that he said the President will maintain his high ratings, until his last day in office in 2022.
“For every issue that is thrown at him with such negative force, the detractors and the opposition keep saying the ratings will go down,” Panelo said.
“But the more they say that, the more it goes up. If that is not a powerful language to them, I don’t know what is not,” he asserted.
