Malacañang might have introduced that President Rodrigo Duterte’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) will focus on the theme “a comfortable life for all,” however he spent a larger chunk of time criticizing his enemies and speaking in regards to the issues besetting the nation.
Addressing the joint session of Congress Monday (July 24), Duterte admitted that the nation’s state is way from a paradise.
“We are in for trouble because we live in troubled and uncertain times. And I fear that things might get worse before they become better,” he mentioned.
Duterte mentioned the problems surrounding the West Philippine Sea and federalism should be tackled “sooner or later.”
He urged Congress to go the invoice on reinstating the death penalty for heinous crimes, particularly for drug trafficking, for the sake of bettering the peace and order scenario in the nation.
