The opposition group Tindig-Pilipinas said that the 18 points decline in President Rodrigo Duterte’s net satisfaction rating indicates that “the honeymoon is over.”
A statement from the said cause-oriented group was released after the SWS survey result reached the public.
The group called on the president “to heed the people’s call to stop extra-judicial killings, rethink the war on drugs and desist from weakening our democratic institutions.”
Below is the compete statement of #TindigPilipinas on the recent SWS Survey on the president:
”If the huge decline of the President’s ratings is an indication of anything, it is this: HONEYMOON IS OVER
We at #TindigPilipinas call on the President to heed the people’s call to stop extra-judicial killings, rethink the War on Drugs and desist from weakening our democratic institutions.
The significant drop in the President’s number is expected because while his government was focused on killing the poor and balkanizing our democratic institutions, his administration has miserable failed to deliver his promises – peace in Mindanao, housing, solutions to traffic, end to endo, employment, among others.
Finally, the huge drop in the President’s rating must serve notice to him; the people expect nothing but the truth on the allegations of corruption, ill-gotten wealth, and drug smuggling facilitation levelled against him and members of his family.
Mr. President, we reiterate our call; sign the bank waiver!”
The significant drop of the President’s net satisfaction rating last quarter was the first time since he assumed presidency last year.
The said survey was conducted weeks after the deaths of teenagers Kian Lloyd De los Santos, Carl Angelo Arnaiz, and Reynaldo de Guzman, which caused negative reactions from Duterte’s critics on his war on drugs.
Meanwhile, the Palace has not issued any statement yet about the SWS Survey result.
