Local chief executives of Quezon City, Pasig and Manila scored the highest approval ratings among Metro Manila mayors for their overall performance in 2020, a recent survey has shown.
Results from a study commissioned by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation said Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte got an 85%-approval rating, followed by Pasig’s Vico Sotto with 82% and Manila’s Isko Moreno with 77%.
The survey, held from December 5 to 15, had 3,500 respondents from ages 18 to 70 and were all Metro Manila residents who are registered voters.
Participants were selected randomly and were asked about their LGU’s performance for this year. The number of respondents was proportionally distributed per official population data of NCR cities.
Sotto, Belmonte and Moreno, all rookie mayors, had also placed as the top three mayors in an earlier survey by the group in June for local government’s response to the coronavirus crisis.
