Gary Valenciano Voices Support For ABS-CBN Amid Franchise Revocation Issue

ABS-CBN – Veteran performer Gary Valenciano aired his support for ABS-CBN amid franchise revocation issue.

On Monday, February 10, Solicitor General Jose Calida asked the Supreme Court to cancel ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal. The tv network’s franchise expires on March 30, 2020.

Calida accused the media corporation of “unlawfully exercising their legislative franchises under Republic Act No. 7966 and Republic Act No. 83322. He also clarified that “there is no politics” involved in the filing.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte accused the country’s leading broadcast network of refusing to air his political ads during the 2016 election and for bias reporting. He even told the executives of the tv network to just sell the company.

Several celebrities have appealed to the president to allow ABS-CBN to renew its franchise because lots of people will lose their jobs. Among them are Sharon Cuneta, Lea Salonga, and Robin Padilla.
