The MMDA earlier said portion of Commonwealth Avenue – from Tandang Sora to Batasan Road – will be closed to traffic starting Monday midnight in anticipation of demonstrations to be held in the area in time for Mr. Duterte’s third Sona.
Meanwhile, about 7,000 policemen have been deployed in and around Batasang Pambansa Complex where Duterte will deliver his Sona on Monday afternoon. /kga
