When the President of the United States delivers the annual State of the Union (SOTU) address, it is immediately followed by an official response from a designated member of the opposing political party.
Well, the Philippines is no exception to this exercise.
On Monday, July 22, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte will deliver his Fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA) during which he is expected to say, “The state of the Opposition is seditious,” referring to Sedition charges recently filed against Vice President Leni Robredo and members of the Opposition in connection with the Bikoy videos.
Following Dutete’s SONA, Robredo will deliver the Opposition‘s response, the State of the Opposition address, or SOTO.
SOTO, with one “T,” not with two “Ts” because that would mean Senate President Tito Sotto.
So, stay tuned to hear about the SOTO.
Will the Liberal Party rise again?
