Gov’t “very good” at promoting OFWs' welfare — SWS survey


MANILA, Jan. 11 (PNA) — A recent non-commissioned face-to-face survey by pollster Social Weather Stations (SWS) rated the national government “very good,” or +26 percent, at “promoting the welfare of OFWs.”

Government also received a net satisfaction rating of +51 on “helping victims of disasters,” and “moderate” ratings on “being prepared for natural calamities” (+27). It earned +20 percent on “ensuring that medicines are affordable” and +17 percent on “helping the poor.”

However, the December 5 to 10 survey also showed that 41 percent was “satisfied” and 44 percent “dissatisfied,” for a neutral net satisfaction rating of –2 on their opinion of “what the government had done up to that point to resolve the (November 23) Maguindanao massacre case with justice.” The remaining 15 percent were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied.

It showed that the news on the Maguindanao massacre was followed closely by 75 percent of the public. The survey also showed the national administration receiving a net satisfaction rating of –17 on “suppressing politicians with private armies in Mindanao.”

The national administration received neutral -4 percent ratings on “fighting terrorism,” -3 on “campaigning against illegal drugs”, -4 on “reconciliation with Muslim rebels”, -5 on “reconciliation with Communist rebels”, -9 on both “fighting crimes”, and “fighting inflation.” It also rated very poorly on eradicating graft and corruption, at -27 percent.
