Ano ba si Senator Poe? Gustong baguhin ang batas tungkol sa franchise?


Uumpisahan na daw ni Senator Grace Poe ang pag-hearing tungkol sa renewal ng legislative franchise para sa ABS-CBN kahit na hindi pa ito naka first base sa House of Representatives. Hanggang ngayon, hindi pa nakakarating sa Komite ng Legislative Franchise ang application ng ABS-CBN sa kabila ng parating na EXPIRY ng kasalukuyang 25-year franchise sa March 30, 2020.

Ma’am Grace, alam kong mahal mo ang ABS-CBN. Pero huwag mo naman bastusin ang batas dahil lang sa pagmamahal mo na yan. Tama po si Senate President Tito Sotto III. Kailang hintayin muna ng Senado na makarating ang Bill na inaprub ng House of Representatives. Doon kasi manggagaling ang anumang legislative franchise na kailangan talakayin ng Senado.

What is there to hear if there is no franchise bill? Yan po yung tinatawag na “putting the horse before the cart”. The impending loss of jobs for 11,000 people when ABS-CBN closes down is not justification enough to ignore the law. Ang kailangan siguro ay paghandaan ng ABS-CBN ng separation package ang mga empleyado upang matulongan sila habang naghahanap ng trabaho.
