MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino's next state of the nation address (SONA) is still a work in progress, according to deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte.

Valte said different government offices have started submitting to the Presidential Management Staff reports on projects and developments for possible inclusion in the President's SONA.

But Valte said the central focus of this year's SONA is yet to be determined and it is not yet known if the President will include in it the announcement of who will be appointed as chief justice as the Judicial and Bar Council has yet to submit a shortlist of nominees.
