Basta resolved na ang issues: Imee says ‘no problem’ with ABS-CBN reopening under Marcos Jr presidency
Senator Imee Marcos said there would be “no problem” with reopening the still-shutdown ABS-CBN should her brother, former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., become the next Philippine president.
Speaking to ANC Headstart on Tuesday, December 21, the Ilocano politiko said her younger brother would likely allow ABS-CBN to resume its broadcast operations as long as the issues linked to the media giant have been resolved.
“To my mind, ABS, under the new construct defined by law and all the problems that have been already revealed, once it solves all that, para sa akin walang problemang buksan ‘yan. First 100 days para makita natin,” said Marcos.
In July 2020, ABS-CBN had to cease its broadcast operations after a House committee refused to renew its legislative franchise due to a number of alleged violations.
This came after many threats from President Rodrigo Duterte himself that he would close down the network he deems to be critical of him.
