Sa 2022 ulit! : ABS-CBN to wait until end of Duterte’s term for a bigger chance in their franchise bid




Opposition senator Franklin Drilon has no words to say to the Lopez-controlled ABS-CBN Corporation but simply to try again in 2022 – when President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is no longer the President of the republic.
Drilon said ABS-CBN has no choice but to wait since its renewal application was overwhelmingly denied by the House Legislative Franchises Committee’s vote of 70-11.

“Sad to say, the ABS-CBN will have to wait until 2022 when the new Congress is elected to apply again for the renewal of its franchise,” Drilon said in a statement.

The Liberal Party veteran lawmaker said the fate of the ABS-CBN is reminiscent of the dark age experienced by the country during the years of martial law under the President Marcos regime.
“After monitoring the exhaustive proceedings in the House of Representatives, I am more convinced that the only fault of ABS-CBN is it stepped on some powerful political toes, hence the sword has been unleashed on it,” he said.

Absence of a franchise, the employees of the Kapamilya network are now officially jobless.
“The ABS-CBN as an institution can survive this episode, no doubt, but the people whose livelihood depends on the network are the real casualties of this unfortunate and politically-charged event,” he said.
