PCOO CHIEF EYES QUARTERLY PRE-SONA FORUM



Presidential Communications Operations Office Chief Secretary Martin Andanar bared that the government is now considering to hold a pre-Station of the Nation Address (SONA) 2018 forum every quarter next year after the successful series of forum they have conducted this year.

Andanar said this aims to give updates to people on the government's key policies, programs and initiatives.

The Communications Chief said the pre-SONA became successful because President Rodrigo Duterte cannot cover all accomplishments of the government in his speech since he will speak only for 35 minutes.

Earlier, Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco said the pre-SONA Forum was part of the reformatted 2018 SONA to allow the President to speak more freely on the matters that he would like to share with the people.
