This third installment of my “2021 Counter-SONA” covers President Duterte’s contumacious defiance of the investigation to be conducted by the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) prosecutor; the dismal state of press freedom and human rights; and the corruption and the drug menace under the Duterte administration.

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.
