Seven out of ten Filipinos gave President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo a failing grade in her anti-corruption efforts, according to the latest IBON Survey.

Seventy one (71) percent of respondents to the July 2007 IBON nationwide survey gave President Arroyo a failing grade when they were asked to rank her performance in combating corruption. This was slightly lower than the 72.7 percent recorded in July last year but substantially higher than the 61.22 percent recorded in the January 2007 survey round. A passing grade is 75 and above while failing is 74 below.

15.5 percent of respondents gave her a passing grade in combating corruption, higher than the 14.53 percent recorded last year but lower than the 20.4 percent in January. It is also notable that the percentage of respondents who gave her performance a higher-than-passing grade fell to 7.7 percent from 9.7 percent in July 2006 and 13.9 percent in January 2007.

The July 2007 IBON survey was conducted nationwide with 1,488 respondents to gauge the people’s perception of the economy, their livelihood and income, government performance and other pressing issues. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus three percent. IBON Foundation/posted by Bulatlat
