Drilon vows to work harder, amid rising public trust, approval ratings

MANILA-Senate President Franklin M. Drilon today promised that he will continue to work hard in fulfilling his responsibilities to the nation, amid the results of recent Pulse Asia survey that reported continued rising public approval and trust to his office.  

Drilon said that he is immensely thankful for the “people’s appreciation and trust,” and will strive to further improve his work in leading the upper chamber. 

“I will continue to work hard in the Senate, and I will do all that I can to prove to our Filipino public, that indeed, I value and deserve the trust that they give my office,” he said.  

The latest Pulse Asia survey, conducted from March 1 to 7, 2015 said that Drilon enjoyed a “near majority” public approval rating of 49%, higher than his 47% approval rating last November of 2014. Public trust to his office is also higher, from 42% last November 2014, to 44% in March of this year.

The survey’s data also showed that Drilon is currently the most approved of and trusted among the highest officials of the land. 

Drilon said that while he is grateful for the figures, he “remains focused, with his feet remaining firm on the ground.” 

“Surveys are reflections of public perceptions as they were during that period when it was conducted. If anything, it just reinforces my belief that the only way to gain public trust and approval is to actually do one’s duties as a public servant, and serve and uplift the people,” he concluded.
