“Ang mamatay ng dahil sayo…..”
In a latest survey conducted by Social Weather Stations (SWS)Filipinos in general are confident they can rely on the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to defend the country – especially its interests in the West Philippine Sea – from external threats.



The survey showed 62 percent of the 1,200 survey respondents were “very confident” of the capability of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to defend the country’s territory, the said survey was conducted last December last year.

The same SWS survey showed 26 percent of Filipinos were undecided and 12 percent less confident.
“The AFP’s 62 percent public trust rating that it can defend the country’s territories is still high and not the other away around,” said Vladymir Joseph Licudine, SWS deputy director for survey design, analysis and training.
Overall survey results also showed public satisfaction approval rating of “excellent” 79 percent, with only 15 percent of the respondents undecided and five percent dissatisfied with the AFP or a total net approval rating of +74.
