Bersamin shrugs off SC’s declining rating in SWS
Retiring Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin on Thursday shrugged off the result of the Social Weather Station’s third quarter survey which showed that the Supreme Court’s net satisfaction rating declined from +54 to +41.
“When you have a negative rating we always look for the causes why we have had negative ratings,” Bersamin said.
He pointed out that the high court should deal with the decline in numbers head on.
“When people tell you oh may muta ka, ah siyempre alisin mo yung muta diba? ‘Di naman pwedeng oh wala akong muta awayin mo na ngayon yan. Maghilamos ka muna. Di ba? Baka malaglag ‘yung muta. That’s just putting it bluntly but that is in short what we do when we have negative publicity,” Bersamin said.
Meanwhile, Bersamin’s personal net satisfaction rating remained moderate at +16 in September from +13 in June.
