Survey says Rep. Pulong remains among top performing lawmakers

Davao City First Congressional District Representative Paolo “Pulong” Z. Duterte remains among the top-performing District Representative in the Davao Region, according to the recent survey carried out by the RP-Mission Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD).

Rep. Pulong garnered 84.7 percent, reflecting a notable 3.4 percent increase from the 81.3 percent on the April 2023 survey, next to Rep. Maria Carmen Zamora of Davao de Oro with 85.2 percent. Statistically, within a margin of error of +/-1 percent, Rep. Pulong and Rep. Zamora are both at the top of the list.

According to RPMD, such achievements have led both individuals to share the top spot in the Davao Region based on the nationwide assessment of the “Boses ng Bayan” initiative’s findings on the performance of public officials.

Rep. Pulong thanked the general public for their endless support of him and Davao City.

He also vowed to continue promoting community services and support his district and those in need.

Meanwhile, Davao City’s Third District Rep. Isidro Ungab secured the second spot with 79.4 percent, marking a rise of 1.8 percent. Claude Bautista of Davao Occidental follows closely with 78.6 percent, indicating a 5.1 percent improvement, then Cheeno Miguel Almario of Davao Oriental with 74.15 percent.

Representative Pantaleon Alvarez of Davao del Norte and Davao City’s Second District Rep. Vincent Garcia are tied for the fourth spot, attaining 71.7 percent while Reps. John Tracy Cagas of Davao del Sur received a rating of 68.4 percent, and Ruwel Peter Gonzaga of Davao de Oro scored 68.2 percent.

Representative Nelson Dayanghirang of Davao Oriental continues to hold an impressive performance rating of 66.7 percent while Alan Dujali of Davao del Norte has obtained 65.8 percent from his constituents.

RPMD stated that using this parameter ensures a comprehensive evaluation of the official’s performance, underscoring their role in catering to constituents, pioneering impactful legislation, and delivering premium services.

Dr. Paul Martinez of the RPMD said that regular evaluations are crucial to ensuring that district representatives fulfill their roles and responsibilities effectively.

The “House of Representatives Public Satisfaction” survey for the Davao Region was an integral component of the national “RPMD’s Boses ng Bayan” poll, conducted between June 25 and July 5 this year.

The RPMD surveyed all the districts in every region nationwide, gathering responses from 10,000 registered voters.

The respondents were randomly selected and the proportion of each district’s responders was distributed using official voting population data.
