From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella –  On the First Quarter 2017 SWS Survey


Seventy-eight per cent (78%), a great majority of Filipinos, expressed satisfaction in the government’s performance, notwithstanding the negative criticisms we received here and abroad.

Many Filipinos are less worried about their personal safety; as they feel safe and secure in the streets and at home.
We note that the public (at 70%) believes the current administration is serious about solving the problem of so called “extrajudicial killings” (EJKs); and its efforts to cleanse the Philippine National Police (PNP) of scalawags.

Filipinos understand and support the campaign against hard drug traffickers and violators.  The drive will be relentless until the drug apparatus is rendered inutile; after all what is at stake is the national patrimony, the following generations of Filipinos, who will not only continue our dreams, be our God given social safety net, but also preserve our cultures, our gift to the world.
