NAGA CITY — Justice Sec. Leila de Lima and Interior and Local Government Sec. Jesse M. Robredo top the list of cabinet members of the Aquino administration whose performance were perceived satisfactory, the latest nationwide satisfaction survey showed.
The survey was conducted by StratPOLLS on Oct. 9 to 13 and the result was published in Business Mirror last Oct. 19.
Education Secretary Armin Luistro was ranked third in terms of performance satisfaction rating
De Lima, a native of Iriga City, ranks first as she gained a net satisfaction rating of 18.4 percent.
From a sample of 1,210 adult respondents statistically chosen from 32 key cities of the country, 59.2 percent gave de Lima a satisfaction rating against the 40.8 percent who said they were dissatisfied of her performance.
Prof. Alfredo Sureta, executive director of StratPOLLS said de Lima’s high rating may be due to her performance last year on the preliminary investigations of the infamous Maguindanao Massacre and her quick actions this year as the chairman of the Incident Investigation and Review Committee (IIRC), which investigated the Manila hostage crisis last Aug. 23.
On the other hand, Sec. Jesse Robredo, ranks second as he received a 54.3 percent satisfaction rating against a 45.7 percent dissatisfaction rating. Overall, Robredo scored a net satisfaction rating of eight percent.
Following Robredo in the third place is Education Secretary Armin Luistro. Luistro, whose roots are from Albay, obtained a net satisfaction rating of 6 percent. Fifty-three percent of the sample said his performance was satisfactory while 47 percent thought otherwise.
In the same survey, StratPOLLS also asked their respondents on how they perceived the performance of President Benigno Aquino III on his first 100 days in office.
Mr. Aquino scored a high net satisfaction rating of 62.4 percent with 81.2 percent satisfied and only 18.8 percent of the sample dissatisfied.
The survey also includes the public’s opinion regarding the performance of the 24 members of the Senate with Senator Bong Revilla, Loren Legarda, and Bongbong Marcos ranking first, second and third, respectively.
Questions about the status of the country’s economy, their own economic well-being and public’s access to the computer and membership in social networks were also asked to the respondents, but which results are still on the process of analysis.
However, Sureta said that the findings are still partial as the results only include reports from the National Capital Region. Sureta stated that data from other parts of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao were still not retrieved and processed.
He promised that as soon as the data from other parts of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao are retrieved and processed, they will immediately report the outcome to the public.
