Duterte to deliver a ‘powerful’ SONA

By CNN Philippines Staff

Metro Manila — All eyes and ears in the country will be on President Rodrigo Duterte when he delivers his first State of the Nation Address at the Batasang Pambansa, Monday.

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on Sunday said the President wrote the speech himself and that it is a “powerful” one — that it made him cry after reading the speech.

“It’ll be a powerful speech that will awaken the patriot in every Filipino,” Andanar said. “The speech made me cry.”

Andanar previously said there will be no “blame game” in Duterte’s SONA.

The SONA’s organizers also said the traditional grand red carpet fashion show by members of the Congress and their spouses will no longer happen, in order to shift the people’s focus on the President’s message.

The speech, according to Andanar, is estimated to run for at least 30 minutes.
