Isabela 1st District Representative Tonypet Albano, in a statement, said the House of Representatives will finally tackle the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise.
The House of Representatives has been criticized for sitting on the network’s franchise renewal because President Rodrigo Duterte was angry at ABS-CBN.
“In the coming days, weeks, and months, we expect to tackle this franchise bill and show the world that we as legislators in the house are fair, honest, and hard working to promulgate a justifiable and amicable decision for ABS-CBN and it’s employees,” Albano said.
He also urged the public to let lawmakers do their jobs.
“Again, we call upon everyone to sober down and trust us in congress to let us do our work diligently and with our own timing and pace,” Albano said.
