MANILA - Malacañang on Sunday said President Rodrigo Duterte remains focused on achieving his promises to the people.

This, after a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed most Filipinos believe Duterte can fulfill most of his campaign promises.

Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said Duterte's vow to rid society of drugs, criminality and corruption is part of the President's goal of building a "progressive and inclusive nation."

"This remains the focus of his PRRD and his team -- and its effects are now being felt by the people," he added.

The SWS survey was conducted on March 25-28, 2017 among 1,200 adult respondents nationwide.
