Robredo slams the 70 solons who voted to kill ABS-CBN bid for a new franchise : You should have represented your constituents' voices




Vice President Leni Robredo slams the 70 lawmakers that voted to deny the fresh 25 year legislative franchise that was being renewed by the Lopez-controlled ABS-CBN Corporation.
According to the Vice President instead of personal reasons and justification they should have consulted with their respective constituents.

"Kaya nga representatives ang tawag, ikaw dapat ang nagrerepresent ng mga constituents mo....pero ito talagang nakakadurog ng puso," Robredo said in her weekly AM radio show.

[Translation: This is why you're called representatives, you're supposed to represent your constituents...but this incident is really heartbreaking.]
Robredo shared the fact that even her, part of the political opposition agaist President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and being the highest political personality from the Liberal Party (LP) also experienced from being treated unfair by the Kapamilya network.
She adds despite the unfair treatment to her, it is still not enough to deny their new franchise, most especially now the country is facing a pandemic.

"Na-mention sa hearing na kahit ako maraming ads na hindi na-air. Maraming pagkakataon na, lalo kaming naninilbihan sa taongbayan, nararamdaman namin na hindi fair. Maraming mga taga-ABS-CBN ang hindi naging fair sa akin," she said.
[Translation: It was even mentioned in the hearing that I also had political ads which weren't aired on the network. There were many instances, that even we, public servants, felt that it wasn't fair. Some people from ABS-CBN were not fair to me.]
She added: "Pero hindi ito panahon para magsingil ng personal na hinanakit. May mas malaking dahilan, may mas malaking interest tayong pinaglalaban, interes ng lahat ng taong umasang magtrabaho sa ABS."
[Translation: But this is not the time for them to take advantage of personal grievances. There are bigger reasons here, bigger interests that we should be fighting for, interest of the people who work for ABS.]
