Iwa Moto took to social media to tell the government to give attention to the issues raised by consumers against Manila Electric Company (Meralco) instead of focusing on the ABS-CBN franchise renewal issue.
It can be remembered that Meralco received a lot of complaints from consumers who question their electricity bills during the quarantine period.
"Dear government, kesa ABS-CBN anghinahabol nyo at pinag iinitan, try nyo kayang silipin and Meralco? Kasi wagas ang bill ng mga tao! Mahirap na nga ang buhay pinapahirap pa lalo!” the actress wrote in a social media post.
To recall, the Kapamilya network received an order from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to stop its broadcast operation on May 5.
The NTC reasoned out that the legislative franchise of giant media network already expired on May 4 so it cannot continue operating on television and radio.
Since then, it became one of the much-talked-about issues in the country. Several celebrities have already spoken their views about it.
Meralco is the largest private power distribution company in the Philippines. The name is an acronym for Manila Electric Railroad And Light Company.
Last May, the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has ordered power distributors, including Meralco, to provide new billing following the complaints of high electricity charges by Meralco to their consumers.
Meralco also recently announced that it will suspend all its disconnection activities until August 31 to give consumers more time to understand their bills.
