- No holds barred
The authentic opposition’s Counter-SONA has been institutionalized like the President’s SONA. As its appellation suggests, it is a rebuttal to the President’s State of the Nation Address. It presents to the people the unalloyed state of the nation, devoid of aggrandizement, hyperbole, and pretense. It is a critique of the President’s declarations, misdeclarations and non-declarations.
