MANILA, Oct. 18 — Malacañang on Tuesday welcomed the latest results of a survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) for the third quarter of 2011, showing a huge increase in the public’s satisfaction rating with the Aquino administration.

The Aquino administration scored a positive 56-percent net satisfaction rating out of the 1,200 respondents surveyed by the SWS from September 4 to 7.

It has, therefore, gained a 11-point advantage from the scores it received the previous quarter which was pegged at positive 45-percent. The SWS describes the +56-net satisfaction rating as “very good”.

Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda, in a post-briefing interview with reporters, welcomed this good news for the government as he thanked the Filipino public for appreciating the work that the Aquino administration has done so far.

“We're very grateful to the Filipino people for recognizing the performance of the national administration in forwarding inclusive growth and also in trying to reduce poverty and also to eradicate graft and corruption,” Lacierda said.

“We ask the Filipino people to be with us as we continue our efforts towards these two-pronged promises,” he said.

SWS’ media partner, Business World, said in its report about the survey that “the current administration’s net satisfaction rating remains better than those of previous administrations since SWS began the survey in February 1989”.

Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. has also stated in a text message to the said paper that this improvement serves as an encouragement for the administration “to work even harder to attain our goals…in spurring more vigorous and inclusive economic growth.” (PNA)
