SEOUL, Feb. 12 (Yonhap) – President Yoon Suk Yeol's approval rating rose slightly to 39.2 percent from a week earlier, a survey showed Monday.

According to the Realmeter survey, the positive assessment of Yoon's performance rose 1.9 percentage points from the week earlier, while the negative assessment fell 1.7 percentage points.

The survey was conducted on 2,011 adults from Monday to Thursday last week and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points, with a confidence rate of 95 percent.

The rise can be attributable to favorable assessment of a series of policies announced last week, such as a plan to expand afterschool programs at elementary schools and a decision to significantly increase the number of medical school seats.
