#INQFact: Tidbits on the State of the Nation Address
UPDATED: JULY 22, 2016
Every fourth Monday of July, the incumbent president of the Philippines delivers to both the Congress and the Filipino public his State of the Nation Address (SONA), a verbal report meant to update his constituents on what his or her government has achieved in the past year.
Just as no two presidents are the same in priorities and governance, no two SONAs are the same in content and form.
In #INQFact: SONA edition, INQUIRER.net lists little known tidbits about the annual report, from its origins dating back to Andres Bonifacio and the Katipunan, to the lengthiest and wordiest speeches as of 2015.
