Senator Sonny Angara recently made an urgent appeal to President Duterte to reconsider his opposition to the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise, which will end next month.

The veteran politician tweeted last Saturday, January 25, “Sana mapagbigyan ng mahal na pangulo.”.

Duterte has been vocal about his promise that he will block the franchise renewal of the giant network in the country.

The chief executive not only accused biased reporting from the Kapamilya network but also for supposedly failing to air his paid political advertisement during 2016 presidential polls.

The top television network owned by the Lopezes may shut down its operation if its franchise to operate will not be renewed by Congress.

The Kapamilya network chances of having its franchise renewed remains uncertain, as both President Duterte and Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, have aversions against the country’s giant network.

While Cayetano was the President’s running mate also accused vice-presidential candidates were given unfair airtime given by the network.

Senator Angara’s better-half, Tootsy who happens to be an ABS-CBN sales executive. He was first elected to the Senate of the Philippines in 2013 and re-elected for the second consecutive term placing sixth with 18,161,862 votes in the July 2019 election.
