Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Tuesday reacted to the recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey result showingdecline in the number of Filipinos who believe President Rodrigo Duterte could fulfill his campaign vows.
“Maraming mga kababayan tayo ngayon na feeling nila parang nabudol-budol sila.” he said
“Yes, expected yan at sabi ko nga maraming mga kababayan tayo ngayon na feeling nila parang nabudol budol sila, nalinlang, kasi yung 3 to 6 months na susugpuin daw yung crime yung corruption ay talagang raket yun e parang swindle. Alam nya na ‘di kayang gawin yun,” Trillanes said
The results of the SWS survey which was conducted among 1,500 Filipino adults nationwide last September 23-27 was released on Sunday.
The third quarter survey showed that only 35 percent of the adult Filipinpos believed that most of Duterte’s promises would be fulfilled. This is a 17-point decrease as compared to previous quarter March’s 52 percent.
According to SWS this figure is obviously lower than the number of people who firmly believed that the President could achieve his promises in September 2016 which stood at 56 percent.
Malacañang also said there was nothing unsual in the double-digit dropof expectations as “the euphoria of theelections normally wears off after a year in office and people become more realistic on what the government can deliver.” they said
“This has been the trend in previous administrations.”
“What matters is Filipinos remain satisfied when they gave the current administration a ‘very good’ over-all performance rating at +58, as reflected in the same survey,” said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque in his statement last Sunday.
