Director General Ronald “Bato” de la Rosa, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), couldn’t care much less about the general public satisfaction score of the Duterte administration’s war on medicine.

“I don’t care about sa rating na ‘yan,” De la Rosa mentioned in an ambush interview on Thursday in Camp Crame. “Hindi naman ako pulitiko. Hindi naman ako tumatakbo.”

(“I’m not a politician. I’m not running for public office.”)

The public internet satisfaction score of Duterte’s drug war declined by 11 factors in the primary quarter of 2017, in response to a survey carried out from March 25 to 28 by the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The score dropped from +77, as of Dec. 26, 2016, to +66, as of March 17, 2017.

Forty-three p.c of respondents mentioned they have been very happy with the administration’s efficiency, 35 p.c have been considerably happy, 10 p.c have been undecided, and 12 p.c have been dissatisfied.

“Hindi naman kami pulitiko na very conscious about that,” De la Rosa mentioned. “Sa amin, masagasaan ka man o hindi, basta ginagampanan namin trabaho namin. Bahala na kayo dyan.”

(“We’re not politicians who are very conscious about that. For us, whether we step on your toes or not, we’re just doing our job. You can go about your own business.”)

“You can give us negative ratings basta trabaho lang ginagawa namin,” he added.

(“You can give us negative rating but we’re just doing our job.”) /atm/rga
