There may be thousands calling for his resignation, but President Aquino still enjoys the public’s trust, Malacañang said Tuesday.
“Sa nakikikita nating constant monitoring, malaki naman ang kalamangan ng sumusuporta ng Pangulo lalo na pagkapahayag n’ya ng Sona (State of the Nation Address),” Communications Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma Jr. said during a press briefing.
This was a day after the National Heroes’ Day, where thousands of groups trooped to Luneta to call for the scrapping of all kinds of pork barrel in government funds.
Monday’s attendance during the protest turned out to be lower than that of last year’s Million People March.
Coloma said this was because many Filipinos still recognize the efforts of the Aquino administration.
