MANILA, Oct 6 (Mabuhay) — Vice President Jejomar Binay is not worried with the latest drop in his public satisfaction rating, her daughter, Senator Nancy Binay, said Tuesday.
“Sa kanya, ang mindset niya whether mataas o mababa, dapat consisitent ka lang sa pagtulong mo sa ating mga kababayan. Iyon ang focus nya, kung paano mapaginhawa ang buhay ng ating mga kababayan,” Sen. Binay told reporters when asked if the Vice President is worried with his numbers.
Sen. Binay said her father is just focused on serving the people.
“This is not the first na bumaba yung trust and performance rating niya. I guess, trabaho lang, tuloy tuloy yung trabaho. I think malaking factor na wala na siyang trabaho lalong-lalo sa housing sector, OFWs pero as Vice President, sinusubukan niyang tumulong pero symepre iba pa rin yung bahagi ka ng Gabinete,” she said.
The Vice President resigned from the Cabinet on June 22. From then on, he has been openly criticizing the Aquino administration for its alleged shortcomings.
Earlier in the day, a latest survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations from Sept. 2 to 5 showed that Vice President Binay’s public satisfaction rating dropped nine points – +33 percent in the third quarter from +42 in the second quarter.
For his part, lawyer Rico Quicho, Binay’s spokesperson, said the results of the different surveys would strengthen the resolve of the Vice President to continue to fight for his pro-poor programs that he has started in Makati.
“The Vice President will continue with his provincial trips to directly talk with and listen to the people, and offer them a decisive, effective and inclusive governance,” Quicho said in a press statement.
“He will continue to present his platform that is based on uplifting the lives of the people and ensuring that the ineptness and iniquities displayed by the present administration will cease,” he added. (MNS)
