TESDA, AFP, COMELEC notch highest approval, trust ratings

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), and Commission on Elections (COMELEC) received the highest approval and trust ratings among respondents to the PAHAYAG 2022 Second Quarter survey conducted by PUBLiCUS Asia Inc. from June 16-22, 2022.

72 percent of respondents said they approve or strongly approve of TESDA’s overall performance throughout the Duterte administration. AFP and COMELEC notched total approval ratings of 69% and 66%, respectively, for their performance from June 30, 2016 until present.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (62%), Department of Science and Technology (62%), Department of Social Welfare and Development (62%), Department of Tourism (62%), and the Commission on Higher Education (61%) also received approval ratings above 60 percent.

“All other agencies generally fared reasonably well, with the lowest rated agencies still managing to receive total approval ratings that outstripped their total disapproval ratings,” PUBLiCUS noted in the executive summary of its second quarter survey.

The highest total disapproval ratings were notched by the Department of Health (24%), Department of Education (19%), and Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (18%). However, the three agencies also earned total approval ratings of 50 percent or above.

Meanwhile, the Armed Forces of the Philippines was rated the most trustworthy government institution. 63% of respondents said the trustworthiness of the military was ‘high’ or ‘very high’ throughout the term of outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte.

TESDA garnered a total high trust rating of 60%, followed by COMELEC (58%), DOST (54%), CHED (53%), DSWD (51%), the Department of Education (50%), and DPWH (50%).

The 1,500 registered Filipino voter respondents who participated in the survey were randomly sampled by PureSpectrum, a US-based panel marketplace with multinational presence, from their national panel of more than 200,000 Filipinos. The sample-wide margin of error is +/- 3%.
