Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 22) — President Rodrigo Duterte is late again, this time for his fourth State of the Nation Address.

The SONA is scheduled at 4 p.m., but he arrived at around 4:54 p.m. at the Batasan Complex via chopper.

Last year, the President arrived before 4 p.m., but the SONA was delayed due to issues surrounding the House Speakership. On the same day of last year's SONA, then Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez was ousted in a majority vote by House solons, and was replaced by Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
