STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS (SONA) 2012

State of the Nation Address is an annual event in the country where the President of the Philippines reports on the status of the nation as stated in the Philippine Constitution (Article VII, Section 23 - The President shall address the Congress at the opening of its regular session. He may also appear before it at any other time.) It also is stated in the Constitution that the SONA will be delivered every 4th Monday of the July at the Batasang Pambansa Complex in Batasan Hills, Quezon City.
Since the 23rd is the 4th Monday of the month, it is scheduled to be the President's SONA. This will be the President's third SONA since he became the president of the country. SONA is supposed to be the time when a president will boast the things he did for the country, announce the accomplishments he had for the nation, and promises that was completed. Last year, the President P'noy has promised a lot of things for the country and boasted the reduction of hunger and poverty at the same time the prohibition of "wang-wang". Aside from boasting a lot of things last SONA, like straight and righteous path.
With all his promises and plans towards straight and righteous path for the country, it's so hard to see a completed task from his promises. We are able to see a lot of things unfinished or worst, not started promises from his SONA.
Clearing the system from abusive officials and government leaders is one of his biggest promises and is becoming controversial due to the cases filed against the former president and now the Congresswoman Gloria Arroyo and the conviction of the former CJ Corona.
As a citizen, a concerned citizen, I need to know what the president has done this year for the nation despite of the issues we are currently facing regarding the Scarborough Shoal. I want to hear the things that he had completed for me as a citizen and for the country as a whole. This time I hope, he has something to tell about the things he had promised from the previous year. I also would want hear what the President's plan for us and for the country.
