PGMA's last SONA to focus on economy and education

Manila (26 June) -- Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo said President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's upcoming State-of-the-Nation Address (SONA) will focus mainly on the economy and education.

Fajardo said political issues such as the Constituent Assembly (Con-Ass) will be an unlikely topic when the President delivers her last SONA on July 27.

"There will be no political issues that would be discussed or tackled in the SONA. The President will be focusing on the economy and education," Fajardo said.

The President is currently in Brazil after a hectic four-day working visit to Japan to work out better diplomatic relations and bring home more trade, investments, and other development assistance.

During her foreign trips, the President is also opening new job opportunities and finding ways to improve the welfare of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) as part of her overall strategy to shore up the economy amid the global financial crisis.

Fajardo said that Charter Change or the mode of Con-Ass is a matter better left to the legislators, in respect to the co-equal branch of government. (PIA) [top]
