HOUSE SPEAKER ALVAREZ 'CHALLENGED' AFTER SWS RATING DIP



House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez deemed the drop in his satisfaction rating a “challenge for us to do our work” at the House of Representatives.

In the latest first quarter survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS), Alvarez' net satisfaction rating fell to +1 from December 2017's +14 – a drop of 13 points.

According to the House speaker, his rating drop was a sign that Filipinos had yet to feel the impact of new legislation under his leadership.

Apart from Alvarez, embattled Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno also had a rating drop of 13 points – from December 2017's +6 rating to -7.
