Paolo to attend last SONA
July 25, 2021 - Sunday 7:07 PM by PR1st District Representative Paolo Z. Duterte
Presidential son and Davao City 1st District Representative Paolo Z. Duterte will be the only member of the First Family that would attend the last State of the Nation Address of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on July 26.
Rep. Duterte confirmed his attendance to Monday's SONA saying it is his duty as congressman to attend the address. The president's eldest son said he will be attending together with his wife January Duterte.
Rep. Duterte's siblings, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte and Vice Mayor Sebastian Duterte will not be attending the President's SONA.
Mayor Inday Sara already begged off while Sebastian is still recovering from Covid-19. Their matriarch, Mayor Sara said, would also not attend.
The live audience during the last SONA of President Duterte will be limited due to the Covid-19 threat.
Duterte’s SONA in 2020 was historic, as it was the first time that a hybrid format was adopted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Only 50 people were allowed inside the Batasang Pambansa’s plenary hall – 25 from the executive branch, 13 from the House of Representatives, and 12 from the Senate. The rest of the officials, lawmakers, dignitaries, and other guests attended SONA 2020 virtually.
On Monday, The House of Representatives would only allow around 350 people to be present in Batasang Pambansa, according to House Secretary-General Mark Mendoza.
For the attendees, they would be required to undergo RT-PCR test before the SONA and an antigen test on the day of the event.
