Para kay Buhay Partylist Congressman Lito Atienza may masa madaling paraan daw sa pagbibigay ng prangkisa sa ABS-CBN.
Imbes daw na maghain ng bagong panukala para sa legilative franchise ng Kapamilya network, p[wede naman daw magsumite ng “motion for reconsideration” para resolbahin ang isyu sa ABS-CBN. Ayon sa mambabatas, hindi naman daw tuluyang nababasura ang legilative franchise bill dahilna sa committee level pa rin daw ito.
“That’s one mode of doing it. In my opinion, there’s a shorter route and that is to file a motion for reconsideration, the matter is still on the table. It was laid on the table at the committee level so technically under our rules, pwede sabihin ng plenary ‘yung nakastandby d’yan na ABS-(CBN) bill. It appears on our agenda everyday, the ABS-(CBN) issue still on our agenda as an unfinished business… Yun ang (That is the) shorter route. Without filing a new bill we can take up what is on our agenda these past months and take it up fairly, allowing both sides to speak freely and make a decision on the plenary level,” boladas ni Atienza.
Umaasa daw siya na maaring mangyari ito sa pamumuno ng bagong House Speaker na si Lord Allan Velasco.
“I am just relying on the character of the new Speaker, he’s not the type to double-cross and double talk and deal with everybody with a sleight of hand… The issue is still at rest at that level and I believe it can be pulled out by the plenary now and reconsider. In the new leadership that we have now I am also convinced we will have a free debate on the issue na hindi (that is not) dictated and hindi (not) railroaded,” kuda pani Atienza.
Magugunita na bumoto ang mayorya ng kongreso na huwag bigyan ng prangkisa ang ABS-CBN dahil sa mga nakitang paglabag ng kumpaniya. Ilan sa mga lumabas na isyu laban sa istasyon ay ang unfair labor practice, tax avoidance scheme, isyu sa titulo ng lupa ng ABS-CBN headquarters at marami pang iba.
