Bersamin, other justices to attend SONA
Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin on Friday disclosed that he and some Supreme Court justices will attend President Duterte’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday.
“I look forward to the SONA because that is really a national event for all Filipinos and especially for us who are serving the government in one capacity or another,” he said.
When Bersamin was asked by reporters on what the Chief Executive might talk about in his speech, he said: “The President can cover as many topics or as many concerns as he wants.”
“Alam ninyo itong Presidente natin ay napakalawak ng kanyang karanasan at kung napapansin ninyo kaya siya siguro mataas ang ratings sa survey dahil hands-on siya saka pinakita niya yung unusual na political will,” Bersamin, who was appointed chief magistrate by Duterte, said.
