Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque made a big revelation that he is an ABS-CBN supporter.
KAMI learned that Roque has spoken after receiving backlash after the denied franchise renewal of the Kapamilya network.
In a Facebook post by CNN Philippines, Roque admitted that he is “hurt” after noticing that ABS-CBN has something against him.
“It hurts me when I noticed that the ABS-CBN itself is distributing social cards against me now,” he said.
According to the Presidential Spokesperson, he is the strongest ABS-CBN supporter in the Duterte administration.
“Paulit-ulit ko sinasabing may utang na loob ako. I don’t think they can find a stronger supporter within the administration for ABS-CBN other than me,“ he shared.
In a YouTube video by Philstar News, Roque said that it was painful for him that the Congress denied the franchise renewal of the network.
“Masakit din po sa akin ang nagyari sa ABS-CBN. Hindi naman po sikreto na Kapamilya rin ako. Nakilala po ako dahil sa ABS-CBN, panahon pa ni Jing Magsaysay ng ANC,” he said.
“So malaki po ang utang na loob ko sa ABS-CBN at noong ako po’y naging tagapagsalita, malaki rin po ang naging utang na loob ko dahil number 1 naman po talaga sa reach ang ABS-CBN.
“Nalulungkot po ako na dumating po sa punto na hindi po na-renew ang prangkisa,” he continued.
ABS-CBN Network is one of the biggest broadcasting companies in the Philippines. It produced many award-winning shows and artists throughout the years.
However, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) issued a cease and desist order against ABS-CBN. Roque said that President Rodrigo Duterte is “neutral” regarding this issue.
About a week ago, the House officially rejected the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN. 70 lawmakers voted “yes” to deny the franchise.
