Landslide ang boto ng mga kongresistang pabor sa tuluyang pagpapatigil sa operasyon ng ABS-CBN.

Sa botohan ngayong Biyernes, July 10, nagpasya na ang mga kongresista sa resolusyon ng Technical Working Group (TWG) ng Kamara na huwag bigyan ng panibagong 25-year franchise ang Kapamilya network.

Pitumpu (70) ang bumoto ng “Yes” para tuluyang ibasura ang pinagsama-samang panukala na humihiling ng prangkisa para sa ABS-CBN.

Gaya ng inaasahan, kabilang sa 70 ang mga kongresistang nanguna sa panggigisa sa mga resource persons mula sa ABS-CBN—lalo na ang pinakamatataas na opisyal nito—sa 12 araw na pagdinig.

Ito ay sina Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta ng SAGIP Party-list, Senior Deputy Majority Leader Jesus Crispin Remulla ng Cavite 7th District, Cavite 4th District Representative Elpidio Barzaga Jr., at Iloilo 1st District Representative Janette Garin.

YUL AND DAN VOTE AGAINST, VILMA FOR RENEWAL

Nakakagulat na pumabor din sa tuluyang pagpapasara sa Kapamilya network ang mga dating aktor na sina Manila 3rd District Representative John Marvin Nieto, o mas kilala bilang Yul Servo; at si Laguna 1st District Representative Dan Fernandez.

Inaasahan ng marami na papaboran ng mga celebrity-turned-politician ang patuloy na operasyon ng ABS-CBN.

Higit kanino man, sila ang inaasahang makaunawa sa sentimyento ng mga dating kasamahan sa entertainment industry na maaapektuhan ng network shutdown.

Napanood pa si Yul sa Kapamilya teleseryeng Kampanerang Kuba noong 2005, habang tumatak sa publiko ang pagganap niyang kontrabida sa Calla Lily noong 2006.

Samantala, 11 ang bumoto ng “No” para buksang muli ang network, na ipinasara nitong May 5.

Kabilang sa kanila ang multi-awarded actress at Star for All Seasons na si Batangas 6th District Representative Vilma Santos-Recto at ang dating ABS-CBN news reporter na si Laguna 3rd District Representative Sol Aragones.

Kapwa nag-sponsor ng franchise renewal bills para sa ABS-CBN sina Vilma at Aragones.
