Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano insisted Thursday that President Rodrigo Duterte 'never told me to grant or not grant' the franchise to ABS-CBN.

to operate are set to commence on Tuesday, May 26. The hearings will be handled by the House committee on legislative franchises chaired by Palawan 1st Dist. Rep. Franz Alvarez.“Hindi tama na sabihin ang leadership ng House ay pro- o anti-ABS-CBN (It is not right to say that the leadership of the House if pro- or anti-ABS-CBN). We have our individual stand,” Cayetano said.

“Kausap ko si (I talked to) [Chairman Alvarez], I assured him he has complete autonomy with the vice-chairman and sabi niya (he said) when he starts sa (on) Tuesday, itutuloy-tuloy na ito (this will go on) and I will be making the session hall available to make sure the witnesses na dapat nandoon ay may (who must be there will have) social distancing atsaka (and) there is enough space for everyone,” he added.

Duterte’s ‘dark hand’ visibleBut ACT-Teachers Partylist Rep. France Castro still claimed that Malacañang is behind the events that befell ABS-CBN– from the broadcast firm’s move to renew its franchise up to its shutdown a day after its license to operate lapsed on May 4, as ordered by

the National Telecommunications.ADVERTISEMENT“Dinidribble-dribble ito, ginagawan ng pamamaraan kunyari para mai-ere pero on the final analysis, ang Malacañang pa rin ang nagtagumpay,” Castro said in an online press briefing also on Thursday.(This is being dribbled, making it appear that it will be back on air but on the final analysis, Malacañang still emerged victoriously.)

Bayan Muna Rep. Ferdinand Gaite echoed this, saying that Duterte has previously said that he would block ABS-CBN’s bid to renew its 25-year franchise.“Nakita na nga natin ‘yung maitim na kamay ni Duterte dito sa muling pagharang sa paggawad ng prangkisa sa ABS-CBN. ‘Wag na tayong magpabola pa,” Gaite said.

(We’ve seen Duterte’s dark hand in this latest move to block the grant of a franchise to ABS-CBN. Let’s not be fooled anymore.)Gaite said the government is now only looking for reasons to deny the franchise renewal bid of the media giant network.Gabriela Party-list Rep. Arlene Brosas, meanwhile, noted that it was Duterte’s allies that wanted to proceed with the discussions on ABS-CBN’s 25-year franchise instead of first granting the network a provisional franchise.

“We have reasons to believe that the executive branch did some string-pulling to derail the temporary return of the network on-air,” Brosas said.“Come to think of it, the bill on ABS-CBN interim franchise breezed through the committee on the whole and second reading with the consensus of the house only to be stopped in its track by notable allies of the president who called instead for discussions of the 25-year franchise,” she added.

Huwag kami, OK? Kelan pa? Huwag mo ng Bigyan ... tutal lang rin naman ayaw nyo talaga ... Karma nyo malapit na din naman sa mga pinag gagagawa nyo ...

Inuna mo pang inasikaso yung tribute kay Kobe Bryant! Ngayon, nasa balag ng alanganin ang kinabukasan ng libu libong empleyado ng ABS CBN! Dingadagan mo pa yung bilang ng 'unemployed' sa panahon ngayon!

🍑🤡💯 Sir, nakakalimutan nyo ata si Sinas. Arbor na nga di ba? Sino ulit ung nagsabi na tutukan daw nila ung pagrenew ng franchise ng abs Dude.. You cant possibly go lower than you already have. 🤦🤦 Why prolong the hearings? Just approve the franchise. All issues have been discussed before. You are unnecessarily delaying the process. Halatang pinag-iinitan.

Sorry, ano daw? Sa boss nya lang sya nakikinig. Walang separation of power tlaga. Hahaha bruh tagal mo nang sipsip kay Digz, “who u” ka pa rin sa kanya lolz Hahahaha. Juskopo. Bakla Galit mga Yellow wokes kay Cayetano, di kasi nila napakinabangan. Doble dusa na naman, 14-0 binasura ng SC ang hinihinging TRO ng ABS para makapagbukas sila uli.

This is the problem when you voted & elected a man with no balls: He would wait til be told to act. He would always lick the ass of his boss. Spineless toad. He should have stayed as a cabinet sec.

Have you seen a kaldero double faced? Look at Allan 😎 Ang '..ang ano..' ni Cayetano ay pwedeng fill in the blank : '...but I can tell you, and look you in the eyes na ang ________sa akin ni Presidente is just be fair.' a. hindi sinabi b. p** i** c. brrrrt brrrt d. all of the above And let's alleviate the number of unemployed Filipinos by not adding the 11,000 employees of the ABS-CBN Corp. Please?

alanpcayetano 🙇 Photo not mine: Kaya pala si Tatay Digong ang nag decide kung sino ang speaker of the house. Kasi hindi siya nakikialam. Got it. If I may suggest, instead of prolonging the hearing, why not just approve the franchise bill. We all know that all of the allegations that will be discussed in the Congress have already been discussed in the Senate. Let's save some of our funds and time. Please?

Ano po yung 'ang ANO' sa inyo? Diktador o Authoritarian Ang Kasalukoyang Pamahalaan. Mga Pansariling Kapakanan Lang Nila! Iniintinde. Umabot Na Sa Hearing Nang Kamara Ang Isyu Tinanong Ang NTC Anong Grounds Sagot Nila Wala Franchise Lang Yong Kulang! you really wanna talk about his attitude? Cayetano is duterte’s favorite cocksucker 😡 Magladlad kana ate Caye 👍👍 gaycayetano

YesToABSCBNShutdown yestoabscbnnewsshutdown

Shut up Mr kaldero D and your elks got ONLY 2 yrs Allan. ABSCBN is a Kapamilya Forever! Sinungaling! Let's see how it goes. Talaga po? Ewan ko lang ha. Pero mahirap paniwalaan ang salita ng isang starfruit eh. At yung sala sa lamig, sala sa init. Fairness is such an overused word. It now connotes negative thing to me.

Akala ni cayatae forever siyang in power ... Wala nang boboto sa yo alanpcayetano. Sukang suka na ang sambayanan sa kagaguhan mo. tapos ka na...bye2 Never trust a CHINA puppet. So inaamin ni cayetano na siya ang dahilan bakit walang franchise ang abscbn. Ganun? Whatever you said Cayetano is already unbelievable....

ABS-CBN near ‘very painful’ decisionABS-CBN may have to start letting go some of its 11,000 employees in August if Congress fails to grant its application for franchise renewal soon, its president and CEO Carlo Katigbak told the Senate. Kung inayos mo lang sana ang pag renew ng franchise ng abscbn at hindi kayo gumawa ng iligal eh di sana hindi mawawalan ng trabaho ang 11k na empleyado mo. Akala mo kasi kayo na ang pinaka makapangyarihan sa Pilipinas. may no longer matter, but what happened in 2014 2015, & the years that followed, sense of urgency? 💔💔💔.. 🙏 🙏 🙏

House to decide on new ABS-CBN franchise 'by August' – CayetanoThe House committee on legislative franchises will resume its hearings on the ABS-CBN franchise bill on May 26. ABSCBNFranchise Prangkisa ❤💚💙 Pffft. Ban this shit or rename it. YesToABSCBNShutdown Hearing delayed is justice denied. Vote wisely in 2022.

Lawmakers lament abandonment of ABS-CBN provisional franchise billMoro moro lang ... ivotenoleadership If the employees commit suicide because of this they've got blood on their hands. NeverForget Hope we get the names of congressmen blocking the passage of franchise bill for transparency.

House drops bill on ABS-CBN ‘provisional franchise’, slates hearings on 14 billsAfter rushing second reading approval of HB 6732 last week, Speaker Allan Peter Cayetano and the House of Representatives leadership has decided to drop the measure. My goodness, 14 bills just to renew. The Franchise committee should have checked the bills to determine if they can be merged some of it into one single bill. Ang dami dami niyan bago pa matapos pag-aralan ang isang bill ay umabot na sa 2021 Ano ba nagawa ni Lopez sa Pinas kundi siraan mga Marcos, Estrada, Arroyo, Duterte? 3% lang tax ng ABS-CBN? OPEN BIDDING FRANCHISE na yan, yayaman ang Pilipinas. Kaso, gusto lang nila mga Lopez kasi ayaw gumamit ng utak

Advising NTC is not meddling in ABS-CBN franchise issue – OSGABS-CBN may have to start letting go some of its 11,000 employees in August if Congress fails to grant its application for franchise renewal soon, its president and CEO Carlo Katigbak told the Senate. Hindi kasalanan ng Gobyerno yan. PAGKUKULANG Yan ng ABS CBN Management. WAG NYUNG Isisi sa iba ang PAGKAKAMALI Nyu!!! This government just tested the people. No uprising during the abscbn shutdown just means they can continue doing their shit. So as long as Filipinos don't do something about it, nothing will happen. This incompetent corrupt government is playing you all. OustDuterteNow
