Mario FetalinoPRESIDENT Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has done a “great job” in his first 100 days in office, setting the pace of leadership that will usher the country into economic recovery.

He did a good job of crafting a national budget that is responsive to the country’s needs and ensuring a functioning government to ensure the implementation of policies he laid down in his eight -point economic agenda.

The House of Representatives, under the leadership of Romualdez, passed in record time the P5.268 trillion proposed national budget for next year last week.

The proposed government spending program mirrors the needs of the country struggling to bounce back from the ill effects of the pandemic.

Romualdez also praised the President’s recent state visits to Indonesia, Singapore, and the US, saying the trips netted billions of dollars in much-needed foreign investments in the country.

The President got investment pledges amounting to $14.36 billion from his trips to Indonesia and Singapore, and over 4 billion in his state visit to the US.

Meanwhile, the chief executive also led other ranking officials of the government in posting high positiive ratings as the newly-minted Marcos Administration completes its first 100 days in office.

This was evident in the non-commissioned PULSO NG PILIPINO survey conducted by the Issues and Advocacy Center (The CENTER).

The survey was conducted from Sept. 16 to 22, 2022 which covered some 1,200 respondents nationwide.

Some 74% of the 1,200 respondents said they are satisfied with the performance of President Marcos while 15% said they are dissatisfied with 10% saying they don’t know for a net satisfaction rating of +59%.

Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio posted a +60% net satisfaction rating with some 73% of the respondents saying they are satisfied with the way she performed as Vice President and concurrent Secretary of the Department of Education and Culture. Thirteen per cent said they are dissatisfied with the same percentage of respondents saying they are undecided.

Senate President Juan Miguel ‘Migz’ Zubiri was also accorded the same +60% net satisfaction rating with 75% saying they are satisfied with the way he leads the Philippine Senate while 15% said they are dissatisfied and 19% are undecided.

This high net satisfaction rating given to the Senate President is nearly the same as the +61% Net Satisfaction Rating that former Senate President Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto III posted towards the end of his term.

Romualdez posted a +26% net satisfaction rating with 53% saying they are satisfied with his performance as Speaker and 27% claiming they are dissatisfied and 19% are undecided.

Traditionally, the House Speaker has always been generating low net satisfaction ratings in the past due to the negative perception the public has of some of the members of the Lower House.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Alexander Gahon Gesmundo registered a+18% net satisfaction rating with 47% saying they are satisfied with his performance while 29% are dissatisfied and 23% are undecided.

Even in the past, the Supreme Court Chief Justice has always rated poorly in terms of public perception and this is mainly due to the public’s very low awareness level of the Chief Justice who isn’t an elected official.

Overall, the Marcos Administration was given a +57% net satisfaction rating by those interviewed with 73% saying they are satisfied with the overall performance of the Marcos Government with only 16% saying they are dissatisfied and 11% are undecided.
