Classes in Quezon City on SONA day suspended

The local government of Quezon City on Monday announced that classes in all levels will be suspended on July 25, the first State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Duterte is expected to deliver his first SONA at the Batasan Pambansa Complex in Quezon City.

The Quezon City Police District has yet to announce its security deployment for the SONA.

Malacañang said earlier that Duterte's first SONA speech will be short and "clear, concise and crisp."

The Palace has tapped award-winning director Brillante Mendoza to help in the preparation for the SONA.

It also said that guests will be asked to tone down their sartorial picks in an effort to make sure that the political event will "not be a fashion show." —ALG, GMA News
