MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III will report on what his anti-corruption campaign has done the past year and tell the country his plans for the next 365 days, when he addresses Congress for his state of the nation address on Monday, Palace deputy spokesperson Abigail Valte said Saturday.

Valte said these were the themes of Aquino’s speech but did not get into the details of the address, saying she did not want to preempt the President’s speech.

“If we’ll recall, the President was elected in 2010 because of his promise of his anti-corruption program among our priorities. He will now show how we have fulfilled that promise in the one year or so that he has been in office,” Valte said on radio.

“Second, he will discuss where he wants to take us in a year’s time,” she added.

Valte said the public would have to wait for these details until he delivers his speech on Monday as Congress resumes session.
