My hubby Alan made this initial assessment for South China Morning Post (HK) on the eve of President Benigno Aquino’s last State of the Nation Address (SONA).
It’s only initial because so much can still happen in his last year in office.
Our thanks to Dr. Mahar Mangahas of Social Weather Stations who agreed to be interviewed even while he was busy abroad. And to Aurelio German, who was first interviewed when Aquino was running for office in 2010. Reli German lends a historical perspective.
