The passage of the sin tax measure and the controversy issue about reproductive health laws will be one of the highlights of the fourth State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III on July 22, 2013.
According to deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte, the Presidential Communications Development Strategic Planning Office under Secretary Ricky Carandang was assigned to prepare the success tale of the Aquino administration in the conference in Malacanang.
Valted added, they usually work on SONA around February because they need to assure first that the departments already put in their respective reports on areas of accomplishment they want to bring up. Even so, these accomplishments still have to be verified by the Office of the President.
The other focus of the SONA this year is still fluid and under discussion.
