Inabandona ng kasama sa Kamara? Speaker Cayetano, umatras sa provisional franchise o five month extension na panukala para sa ABS-CBN at ito ang palusot niya. Panibagong pakulo naman ay 25 year franchise renewal. Nililito niya tayo. Mailusot niya kaya sa Kamara ang hinahangad na prangkisa? Sa Senado kasi, matagal nang bistado ang mga CONFLICT of INTEREST na mga senador. Sa Mababang Kapulungan, marami pa ang NAGKUKUNWARI. May sinasabi pero iba naman ang gustong mangyari. Abangan.

House to skip break to hear ABS-CBN issue

MANILA, Philippines — Members of the House of Representatives would have to skip their midterm break when they deliberate on ABS-CBN’s application for a franchise renewal, House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano said on Tuesday.

“The deliberations … will continue … until they are finished so no one can say we’re stopping the process, or dragging our feet,” Cayetano said.

Cayetano said the issue had become “so divisive” and “so polluted,” that it distracted Congress from more pressing concerns like the COVID-19 crisis.

The House committee is likely to hold two to three hearings a week, Cayetano said, adding that the House should be ready to decide when it comes back after its recess starting on June 4 and after President Duterte’s State of the Nation Address on July 27.

In the Senate, Se­nate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon on Wednesday said Cayetano’s decision to withdraw the bill showed his indifference to the plight of the network’s 11,000 workers.

Union leaders of the company meanwhile said they were staying strong for their coworkers and families despite the looming prospect of layoffs.
