ABS-CBN Franchise Renewal Challenged
ABS-CBN FRANCHISE – Do you want the franchise of the ABS-CBN or the Kapamilya network to be renewed?
One of the pressing issues that is widely talked about now is with regards to the renewal of the franchise of the Kapamilya network. Undeniably, the said network is one of the giants in the field and has been on the industry for decades already.
The franchise of the network is set to expire this March 2020. Previously, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has expressed his disappointment several times over the Kapamilya network.
The former Davao City Mayor claimed that he paid for an election campaign advertisement when he was running for President in 2016 but his campaign Ad was not aired by the ABS-CBN Network.
Pres. Duterte warned ABS-CBN that if he has a way, he will not allow the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise. Amid the issue, some authorities assured that it will be dealt fairly.
Unexpectedly, a few weeks before the franchise of the Kapamilya network will expire, Solicitor General Jose Calida filed a petition against the network before the Supreme Court. He pushes for the revocation of the existing franchise of the network.
Calida accused the Lopez-owned network of violating the Constitution by allegedly allowing foreign investors to “take part in the ownership” of the media body. On the part of the network, it expressed that it did not violate the law.
The move of Calida took the social media by storm. Different views and opinions of people regarding the matter were aired online. Some are in favor of the franchise renewal while others stand on the same ground with the SolGen’s.
