We’re asking everyone to take time to listen to what the President has to say so we can talk about the data or whatever the programs are that will be mentioned by the President, Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a radio interview on Saturday.The President's SONA will be broadcast live on television and on radios. It will also be available in the government website, the Official Gazette, as well as on Twitter, Valte told dzRB Radyo Ng Bayan. So let’s not miss the sixth and last SONA of President Aquino on Monday. The President's SONA is important and a serious matter, Valte said which is why the President prepares well for the SONA.President Aquino expects the public to listen to his message and everyone's focus is to understand his speech, Valte said.For those planning protest actions, Valte made an appeal for them to cooperate with the authorities and keep the protests peaceful and safe. Kasama po ‘yan sa ating demokrasya, ‘yung the ability to rally, to demonstrate, and to be able to express your thoughts on a certain issue or a certain administration, but again, let’s keep it peaceful, she said asking them not to provoke the authorities.On the issues about outfit of those attending the event, Valte said that as far as the Palace is concerned, they will keep simple and follow the appropriate dress code but the focus would be the message the President will deliver to the public.As to the attire of the President, Valte said he always wears barong, and he probably will on Monday. He does not really give much thought into what he is going to wear because it’s really the speech that he pays attention to, she said.Designer Paul Cabral always makes the barongs that the President wears, she said.
