For the year 2022, ratings and rankings are thoroughly assessed based on work performance. As the local chief executive, mayors have a diverse range of responsibilities. Governors are accountable for the execution of programs and initiatives, the enforcement of laws, and the implementation of the province development plan. Representatives are elected officials entrusted with representing constituents and enacting legislation.
According to Dr. Paul Martinez of RPMD, these public officials who excelled in “constituent service” and service to the nation should be congratulated and commended for their exceptional performance.
The independent and non-commissioned “Boses ng Bayan” national performance evaluation survey for the year 2022 was conducted from November 27 to December 2, 2022, in each city or district in each region. Among the 65.75 million registered voters between 18 and 70, 10,000 respondents were selected. The sample employs a plus-or-minus 1% margin of error and a degree of confidence of 95%. Respondents were chosen randomly, and the number of respondents was distributed proportionally based on the number of registered voters per area.
