The federal government’s effective measures to control the coronavirus pandemic in the country without squeezing economic activities has doubled up its approval rate among the masses, a recent public survey has found.
Gallup Pakistan conducted a nationwide survey on the completion of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf’s (PTI) two years in power and asked various questions regarding the government’s performance.
On the question of PTI government’s first two years as compared to the previous ones, 44% of the respondents said that the performance of the incumbent government was better than the previous one, while 49% said it was otherwise.
During the Gallup Pakistan’s April-May survey, only 22 percent of respondents were satisfied with the government’s performance, which means that its approval rate has doubled up in the last few months thanks to its concrete policies.
Note that Pakistan is among the few countries in the world to have controlled the novel coronavirus. As opposed to the neighboring country, India, where the total caseload has crossed 3.8 million, with over 81,000 new cases reported on Thursday, Pakistan’s tally now stands at 8,813 active cases, with 6,318 overall deaths. The country has been witnessing a continuous decline in new virus infections for over two months now.
