Vilma Santos-Recto Ready To Face Consequences Over ABS-CBN Renewal Vote
VILMA SANTOS-RECTO – Vilma Santos-Recto said that she is ready to face the consequences over her vote in favor of the ABS-CBN renewal.
According to Inquirer, the actress-congresswoman said that she is an “independent thinker” despite being part of the “super majority”.
The House legislative franchises committee denied the renewal of the ABS-CBN Franchise. 70 members of the House voted to deny the renewal, while 11 voted to approve it.
Santos, citing her past experience, said that she lost a committee chairmanship before because she voted against death penalty in 2017.
“It happened to me already when I voted ‘no’ do’n sa death penalty…sinabi nila na kailangan masuportahan yung major bill na ‘yun, ‘yung death penalty. I stood my ground and I voted ‘no’ so I lost my chairmanship,”
“Pero kung ano man yung naging desisyon ko ngayon dito sa renewal ng franchise ng ABS-CBN at magkakaroon ulit ng ganong consequences, I think I’m prepared for that so tanggapin natin ‘yun,”
Based on the report, she admitted that she was surprised by how the voting turned out. She added that the embattled network was able to answer the allegations against it.
“We’re not expecting malaking malaki…We were expecting na a more comfortable number kasi inisip namin dun sa mga pagdinig na ginawa ay nasagot naman ng ABS-CBN yung mga binato sakanilang questions. Nasagot nila ng tama at may batayan,”
“In fact, alam naman natin na sinabi ng national government agencies…na pinatunayan na wala naman nilabag na batas ang ABS-CBN. So ako personally, umasa na kahit papano, may balanse na sanang mangyayari sa kanilang magiging desisyon sa pagboto,”
