Aug 1, 2021, PUBLiCUS Asia Inc has just released its second quarter poll, conducted from 13-19 July 2021. It is a nationwide purposive sampling survey comprised of 1,500 respondents drawn from a research panel of approximately 100,000 Filipino registered voters maintained by a Singapore-based firm.
Five years of the Duterte administration has given enough time and leverage for various government agencies to perform and execute their policies and programs. Given that the Philippines was sidetracked with the global pandemic that wreaked havoc in health, businesses and economies – government agencies are expected to adapt first and learn fast to make sure service and programs are given to Filipinos.
With the Q2 survey result, Filipinos have acknowledged the best performing government agencies to be the AFP with 67%, TESDA with 65%, and DOST at 61%. Getting a high disapproval rating were the DOH with 30%, the PNP with 27%, and the DEPED with 26%.
AFP, TESDA and DOST agencies were validated in their performance by capturing the high trust rating in Q2. At the tail end were the PNP, DOH, and DBM ranging from 35% to 26%.
