President Rodrigo Duterte’s third State of the Nation Address (SONA) is expected to highlight his major accomplishments in his first two years in Malacanang.

Special Assistant to the President Bong Go said in a statement said the President’s annual report at Batasan would focus on his war on drugs, crime and corruption.

“He will also talk about the programs he has implemented, specially those that require a leader with the political will, since these are for the greatest good of the majority,” said Go.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said what set the third SONA apart from the two previous ones is the holding of a three-part series pre-SONA forum which have already spelled out the administration’s achievements the past weeks leading up to the SONA.

“We expect the President’s State of the Nation Address to be a continuation of his two previous SONAs. As the Father of the Nation, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte will once again articulate the people’s desire for genuine and meaningful change,” Roque said in a press statement.

“Traditionally, the SONA is a highlight of achievements of the previous year but this year’s SONA is all about the essentials on what PRRD intends to do in the next twelve months of his Administration,” he added.

Malacañang also released to media a copy of a 68-page report entitled “The Duterte Administration: Year II” which listed the administration’s key accomplishments from July 2016 to July 2018.

Roque earlier said Duterte’s SONA speech will be delivered “straight from the heart,” and is expected to last for only around 35 minutes.

This year, Duterte himself approved Joyce Bernal to replace Brillante Mendoza as the director for his third SONA to give other directors a chance.

Duterte will deliver his third SONA at the Batasang Pambansa Complex in Quezon City on July 23. (With a report from PNA)
