Bearer of bad news: Emil Marañon thinks ‘Peoples Initiative’ for ABS-CBN franchise ‘problematic and impossible’
Abogado Emil Marañon shared his thoughts on the plan of some lawyers and netizens of pushing for a ‘Peoples Initiative’ to counter Congress’ decision to deny ABS-CBN a franchise to operate.
He wrote on his Twitter account, “Hate to be the one to douse a pail of cold water to people advocating for an “initiative” to give ABS-CBN a franchise. It sounds cool in theory, but it’s not only legally problematic, it’s physically impossible.”
He advised that the best thing to do is to prepare for the next national elections.
“Again, prepare for 2022. That’s where the battle is.”
