Getting into one year after GE14: PM’s approval rating at 46%, government at 39%

BANGI, 26 April 2019– Only 39% of Malaysian voters gave the Pakatan Harapan federal government positive ratings in a nation-wide survey carried out in March 2019.

The same survey also saw 46% of voters reporting as satisfied towards the performance of Dr Mahathir Mohamed as the country’s Prime Minister. This was a marked decline compared to the 71% recorded in August 2018.

The decline in public support for the administration can also be seen in the number of voters who felt the “country was headed in the wrong direction” which increased from 24% in August 2018 to 46% in March 2019.
