Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III on Thursday lauded the results of a survey which showed that Filipinos remain satisfied with his performance despite criticisms hurled against his government concerning relief efforts for typhoon victims.


A survey conducted by research institute Social Weather Stations on Dec. 11 to 16 showed that 69 percent of Filipinos expressed satisfaction with Aquino's governance.


"In lieu of the usual naysayers trying to promote the impression that there is a general dissatisfaction among the Filipino people, the survey shows that an overwhelming majority are solidly with (Aquino)," Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said in a statement.


Lacierda noted that Aquino's public satisfaction rating was obtained despite the "tough" decisions he had to make on issues of "serious national concern." He said these include the conflict in Zamboanga City as well as the earthquake and typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, which struck central Philippines earlier this year.


Following the onslaught of typhoon Haiyan, Aquino's government was criticized for its slow delivery of goods and services needed by victims in typhoon-affected areas.


"We are grateful to our people for proving once more that they are on the side of true public service and are unswayed by mere politicking," Lacierda said.


He said the government will continue to work hard to sustain the high economic growth currently being enjoyed by the Philippines.
