President Duterte’s 5th SONA possibly a televised speech

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte’s 5th State of the Nation Address (SONA) is expected to have significant changes.

 

According to Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, the president is likely to do his SONA through a televised speech in Malacañang.

 

It is also possible to hold an event at the Batasang Pambansa but only limited to guests or only legislators.

 

As such, Zubiri said lawmakers will study this in case the constitutional provision is violated at a time when the president cannot provide the SONA with the presence of lawmakers.

 

It will be remembered that mass gatherings under the ECQ and GCQ have been temporarily banned to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 in the country.
