KUALA LUMPUR: The government takes note of the Merdeka Centre’s survey on the one-year administration of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and views it from a positive angle, with efforts to address issues, including economic concerns, being taken, says the Communications and Digital Minister.

Fahmi Fadzil (pic) said the government acknowledges the survey's findings, which he described as a "snapshot" of that particular period.

"As the Prime Minister mentioned at the one-year celebration of the Unity Government in Putrajaya on Nov 23, next year, the government will focus on economic development, including improving people's incomes.

"With the Madani Economy policy, the 2030 New Industrial Master Plan (NIMP), efforts to combat corruption and to improve government administration, including facilitating business and investment, economic growth direction is on the right track,” he said in a statement.

Fahmi, the Unity Government's spokesman, was responding to media reports citing Merdeka Centre’s survey stating that Anwar’s personal approval ratings had slipped to 50 per cent.

In his response on Friday (Nov 24), Anwar said he took note of the matter while also adding that the findings were based on 1,200 respondents, which was not reflective of Malaysia's 32 million population.

Meanwhile, Senior Political Secretary to the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, said the survey does not reflect the overall views of Malaysians but rather from only a group of respondents.

However, he said that the prime minister's approval ratings were far more convincing than those of the previous governments, for example, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who polled 30%, and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s ratings, which ranged between 30 and 40%.

"For me, after a year, if indeed this survey represents the entire Malaysian population, we will make more efforts to ensure that the majority of the people, these 32 million people, will be well taken care of by the government,” he said when appearing as a guest on the Bernama TV’s ‘Ruang Bicara’ programme on Friday.- Bernama
