SEOUL, June 3 (Yonhap) -- President Yoon Suk-yeol's approval rating rose slightly to 53 percent, a poll showed Friday, following the ruling party's landslide victory in this week's local elections.

In a Gallup Korea poll of 1,001 adults conducted Thursday, 53 percent said Yoon is doing a good job, up 2 percentage points from the previous survey last month, while 34 percent said he is not.

On the favorability rating of political parties, Yoon's People Power Party received 43 percent, up 2 percentage points from the previous poll, while the main opposition Democratic Party had 32 percent, up 3 percentage points from the earlier survey.

In Wednesday's local elections, the PPP claimed a resounding victory as it won 12 of the 17 key mayoral and gubernatorial races, including the Seoul mayor.
