Sup­port high for Moon

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

SEOUL: South Korean Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in kept his ap­proval rat­ing at a rel­a­tively high level de­spite con­tro­versy over se­cu­rity is­sues, a sur­vey showed yes­ter­day.

Ac­cord­ing to lo­cal poll­ster Real­me­ter, Moon’s sup­port rate was 74.2% last week, down 1.4 per­cent­age points from a week ear­lier.

The sup­port scores fell for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive week, but Moon’s rat­ing was higher than his pre­de­ces­sors tal­lied early in their pres­i­den­cies.

Moon came into of­fice on May 10. The re­sult was based on a poll of 2 531 vot­ers con­ducted from Mon­day to Fri­day last week.
