MANILA - There seems to be no reason for President Rodrigo Duterte to reject a temporary franchise for ABS-CBN, his spokesman said Wednesday after the House of Representatives suddenly tackled a bill

granting the media giant an authority to operate until October this year.

The move comes more than a week since ABS-CBN shut down its broadcast operations on May 5 in compliance with an order of the National Telecommunications Commission. The company's franchise expired on May 4. "No other branch of government can issue a franchise but Congress. And it must emanate from the House of Representatives," he added.

House Bill No. 6732, filed by House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, grants the Lopez-led network an interim license to operate before Congress deliberates on long-pending bills giving ABS-CBN a license to broadcast for another 25 years.

mikenavallo Masyadong magaling magluto ang administrasyon ngayon. Kaya aralin din dapat ng mabuti ng abscbn ang hakbang nila ang paghandaan ang mga ilalabas ng gumigipit

Baket pag Kayo Ang nagbalita walang 'President' na label si President Duterte? Hindi ba Kayo nag Aral Ng journalism?

Pina-closed tlga kayo ng Pangulo kc mabubuking ninyo ang mga hidden agenda niya *just saying*

maging mapagmatyag, traidor yang digong na yan, sana kumuha kau ng magaling na mga abogado.

The word unlikely is worrying, but what can I expect from this government, nothing is certain and nothing is sure because the leader himself is capricious

Likely ABS CBN will get temporary franchise but permanent lessons.

Just like it was unlikely NTC would issue a CDO, when they agreed with congress to issue a provisional franchise?

Heto na... Lets just about this one...

Magyayabang na naman kayo

Maging mapagmatyag sana kayo ABSCBN! Never ever trust this government!

Bookmark this. Baka bawiin.

duda ako..... ung kinilos ni calida? gagalaw ba un ng ganun kung walang utos?

Palace leaves to the law case of teacher who offered reward for Duterte slayMalacañang has left to law enforcement authorities to file a case against a public school teacher who reportedly offered a huge reward to anyone who can kill President Duterte. Dura Lex Sed Lex Death threats to VP, VPs children, Sen Hontiveros, wala lang? NBI, BS! While it's justifiable to ask Duterte to resign because of inefficiency & incompetency in managing the country, any assassination job doesn't bring justice to all the lives he helped put to death by encouraging EJK. He needs to be alive when its time for his own poetic justice.
