Walang lusot! Trixie Angeles explains why ABS-CBN franchise can’t be passed via people’s initiative
Abogado Trixie Angeles rejected the proposal that the ABS-CBN franchise be passed through a people’s initiative. The abogado said that it is unlikely since under the law, the initiative is only done to propose amendments to the Constitution or enact legislation through an election done specifically for that purpose.
A people’s initiative cant be used for private bills such as a franchisehttps://t.co/Fo9R5trjDr

Angeles said that the ABS-CBN renewal does not fall to the 3 systems of the initiative since it’s categorized as “private law.” The abogado explained further that these private bills must only originate from the Congress before the Senate can propose or concur with amendments.
So wala na talagang pag-asa. Sorry kayo!
