ABS-CBN will be allowed to operate beyond May 4 - NTC




It looks like the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) is making a move after all in defiance to the opinions of other legal minds in the country.

ABS-CBN will be allowed to continue operations as a media network even beyond the expiration of its franchise this coming May 4.


NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba said they will heed the advice of the Department of Justice (DOJ), in allowing the media giant to continue its operations pending the renewal of its franchise in the halls of Congress.

It might be remembered the NTC sought for the advice of the DOJ on whether or not to allow ABS-CBN to continue its operations as a media outfit beyond the termination date of its legislative franchise.

Quoting DOJ’s reply to NTC, Cordoba said: “Based on the foregoing discussions, there is sufficient equitable basis to allow broadcast entities to continue operating while the bills on the renewal of their respective franchise with Congress.”

He then said that NTC will “likely” issue a provisional authority to ABS-CBN.


“The NTC will follow the latest advice of the DOJ and let ABS-CBN continue operations based on equity,” Cordoba said.
