"Around 69 percent of respondents were satisfied with President Jokowi's performance," said SMRC program director Sirajudin Abbas during a press conference in Jakarta on Sunday (10/23).

However, the approval rating was still lower than former President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's second year.

"It was around 71-85 percent," said Gerindra politician Riza Patria.

The survey was conducted on October 13-17 with 1,035 respondents. It has margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent with a 95 percent level of confidence.
