Church exec tells Duterte to ‘shape up’

President Rodrigo Duterte has been told to “shape up” and improve his administration’s services to the people after his trust and satisfaction ratings suffered the steepest drop since he came to power last year.

Father Jerome Secillano, executive secretary of the bishops’ Committee on Public Affairs, said that Duterte’s trust rating could drop further if the latter will not change his leadership style.

“It will continue to go down unless he shapes up, especially on issues of corruption, extra judicial killings, police impunity, and others,” Secillano said.

The priest said he was not surprised with the result because of the many issues hounding the administration, including the drug-related killings.

The priest also stressed the inconsistencies of Duterte’s statements, including when the President lied on the alleged offshore accounts of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

“We’re talking about a person who obviously has a penchant for lying. So, how do we expect people to react?” he said. “It is not a surprise anymore that his trust rating will dwindle.”

Based on the third quarter survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS), Duterte’s net satisfaction rating in September plummeted by 18 points to 48, a level classified as “good”, from a “very good” 66-point rating in June.

The SWS study also noted that president’s trust rating declined by 15 points to 60, classified as “very good”, from his “excellent” grade of 75 points in June. CBCPNews
