MANILA, Philippines — Six out of 10 Filipinos believe that the Philippine court system is impartial, a study showed.

The latest Pew Research Center poll showed that 63% of Filipinos say that the statement “the court system treats everyone fairly” describes the Philippines well. Meanwhile, 35% of Filipinos think otherwise.

The poll, meanwhile, showed that global publics “are divided on whether the court system treats everyone fairly,” Pew said. The poll yielded a 27-country median of 44% who believe the court system treats everyone fairly.

Six out of 10 in the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Canada and Kenya say the statement “the court system treats everyone fairly” described their respective countries well.

In Indonesia, the survey showed 74% of their citizens say their court system treats them fairly.

Meanwhile, only one out of five in Italy, Spain, South Korea and Argentina say that their courts treat everyone fairly.

In Argentina, Brazil, Spain and Mexico, more than half of the publics say that the statement that “court system treats everyone fairly” does not describe their country.

The same survey showed that a majority of Filipinos are satisfied with how democracy works in the country.

It showed that 69% of Filipinos are satisfied with the state of democracy in the country while 31 percent are not satisfied.
