High rating of drug campaign shows solid support to Pres. Duterte: mayor




Undoubtedly more than half in his term as President, he continues to have the support of the majority  most especially in the centerpiece of his administration- in the war against illegal drugs.

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia said the high satisfaction rating in the recent SWS survey of the administration’s campaign against hard drugs and illegal narcotics shows the Filipinos’ continued support.

“In spite of some human rights issues raised, we can see the people are solidly behind the President,” the mayor said in a press conference.

The people has given their approval of the President’s policy against the illegal drugs menace time and time again since the start of his administration in 2016.
“When he declared that it’s (against) illegal drugs, criminality, and corruption, and he pursued this, and he’s getting very high ratings, it simply tells us that this is what the people want,” the mayor added.
The Social Weather Station (SWS) second quarter survey shows that 82% of Filipinos are satisfied with the government’s drug war while 12% were dissatisfied and only 6% were undecided.

Bacolod has always been a supporter of the government campaign to get rid of the illegal drugs in their province, and is also the Visayas pilot site of Balay Silangan, a drug reformation center that will be soon opened with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).
Mayor Evelio Leonardia is the current national president of the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP), said the league is also making the war on drugs a priority aligned with that of the Duterte administration.
