As Mike was asked during the pressc conference for his show Dobol B Sa News TV, he immediately called reporter Divine Reyes who is assigned in Congress.

“Kailangan pong i-refile kasi nagsara na po yung 17th Congress. So ire-refile siya sa 18th po,” Divine explained.
Mike Enriquez added, “Yung Congress, hindi inaksiyunan yung franchise. That means kailangan i-refile yun. Yun ang sistema.”
On the other hand, he stressed out that he has no personal comment regarding the issue.
“Hindi ba, meron turo sa atin na huwag tayong magbunyi sa kamalasan o sa kasamaang-palad ng iba?” Mike said.
The session for the 18th Congress will open on July 22, 2019 while the franchise of ABS-CBN will expire on March 2020, based on the report.
