Baguilat: Duterte admin failing to address nation’s gut issues
Ifugao Rep. Teddy Brawner Baguilat Jr. said Pulse Asia’s latest Ulat ng Bayan survey shows that the Duterte administration is failing to address “gut issues” most Filipinos are concerned with.
He acknowledged that fighting criminality and drug addiction are among the top concerns of Filipinos surveyed, and “this is where PRRD and his administration gets its well spring of support.”
“The administration’s myopic view of the country’s problems drives the President’s agenda but this still resonates well with majority of those surveyed. This is his bread and butter,” he said.
But the Magnificent 7 leader said the foremost concerns of Filipinos are gut issues, such as fighting inflation, creating jobs and increasing work pay.
“And this is where the Duterte administration is perceived by many as having failed so far. It’s in the economic front where the government has received low marks,” he said.
“As we head towards the Christmas season, trust and satisfaction ratings of the admin will continue to fall commensurate to the escalation of prices of basic commodities,” Baguilat said.
