“You’re assuming that the franchise will be up to 2022. Paano kung mayroon nang binigyan ang gobyerno. Kanino pa ibibigay yun. Anong franchise pa ang ibibigay mo sa kanya?” he said when asked by reporters Friday (July 10) on ABS-CBN’s chances of securing a franchise after Duterte’s term ends.
Marcoleta said a franchise was a “finite resource” that the government has to allocate to “deserving” applicants.
Since the frequencies are owned by the government it may be granted to those who have applied for a franchise and has met all the requirement in granting of such.

Lawmaker Marcoleta is a member of the influential religious sect Iglesia ni Cristo headed by Eduardo V. Manalo. He is part of the 70 congressmen who voted to deny ABS-CBN a new franchise.
