While PM Modi has topped the list, US President Joe Biden moved from the top five, and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is way ahead of him in the polls.
New Delhi: The BJP leaders, Union Ministers and Chief Ministers were rejoiced to get the news that there is as much as 70 per cent approval rating in Global Leader Approval Tracker for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This has, of course, put him at the top of the list of most' loved and popular' world leaders.
"A people's favourite due to policies of inclusive development and strong leadership during the pandemic," tweeted Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.
While PM Modi stood tall among all with 70 per cent approval, others to follow him on the ladder were Mexican president López Obrador (66%), Italy's Mario Draghi (58%), Angela Merkel of Germany: 54% and Scott Morrison of Australia stood fifth with 47 per cent. The US President Joe Biden fell on number 6 with 44%, followed by several others.
It has been announced that the approval ratings are based on a seven-day moving average of adult residents in each country, and sample sizes would also vary by country.
The good news came up on November 4, 2021, and it is to be noted that on November 7 (Sunday), the BJP held its crucial national executive meet in Delhi.
This is the third time in 2021 that PM Modi emerged with the 'highest approval' rating in the polls conducted by Morning Consult Political Intelligence.
Earlier in September, Mr Modi had scored the 70% approval rating, the highest among 13 world leaders.
Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said: "His (Modi's) vision, decisive leadership and global stature has continuously been recognised worldwide".
"Hon'ble PM Shri @NarendraModi ji tops the chart of global leader approval and becomes the most admired world leader with an approval rating of 70%. Indians are proud to have him as their Pradhan Sevak," tweeted Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
Others in the list include Justin Trudeau (Canada): 43%, Fumio Kishida (Japan): 42% Moon Jae-In (South Korea): 41%, Boris Johnson (United Kingdom): 40%, Pedro Sánchez (Spain): 37% Emanuel Macron (France): 36%, Jair Bolsonaro (Brazil): 35%.
The report said Joe Biden's approval rating slipped by a few points, which has now removed him from the top 5 global leaders.
Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted: "His grand vision & passionate commitment to steer India to new heights have earned Hon PM Sri @narendramodi an approval rating of 70%, highest among world leaders".
Union Minister G. Kishan Reddy wrote: "Leader of the world's largest democracy is also the world leader with the highest approval rating."
