- The said post of Trillanes already has more than 20 thousand likes and 2 thousand retweets as of this writing
Former Senator Antonio Trillanes claimed on Saturday that ABS-CBN will only get its much-needed franchise when opposition wins in the 2022 election.
KAMI learned that the ex-lawmaker fearlessly aired the said statement through a post on his official Twitter account.
It can be noted that the media giant failed to secure another 25-year franchise after the Congress rejected its application.
Many people think that President Rodrigo Duterte is behind the shutdown since he had been very vocal against ABS-CBN. The Palace, however, firmly debunked such claim.
Trillanes emphasized in his much-talked-about post that what he said about the franchise of the Kapamilya network will happen few years from now if the opposition candidates are the ones in power.
“Mark my words, ABS-CBN's franchise would be granted once the opposition wins in 2022,” he wrote.
As of this writing, the statement of the said ex-Senator already has more than 20 thousand likes and 2 thousand retweets.
It was also able to elicit varied reactions from netizens. Some agreed with what he said, while others stood firm that a member of the opposition has no chance come 2022.
Antonio Trillanes is a former Senator of the Republic of the Philippines. He continues to be one of the staunchest critics of President Rodrigo Duterte and his allies.
About a month ago, he and Robin Padilla slammed each other’s views regarding the government’s response against the novel coronavirus disease pandemic.
The former lawmaker also dared the Palace to let Vice President Leni Robredo lead the inter-agency task force versus COVID-19.
