MANILA – Liza Soberano took to her social media page to humbly ask Philippine lawmakers to give ABS-CBN another chance to fully operate by granting it a franchise.

In a lengthy post, Soberano acknowledged that many have already weighed in on the issue in support of or against the broadcast giant.

“It is no secret that ABS-CBN has been facing many challenges these past few weeks. Marami na po ang nagbigay ng kanilang saloobin tungkol dito. May mga nagalit, nalungkot at nasaktan. Meron ding natuwa at nagsabing dapat lang,” she said.

Soberano, however, stressed that now should not be the time for people to fight each other.

“We all have different principles in our life and we all have the right to our own opinions. Pero kung mapapansin po ninyo, pride ang nananaig, and because of our pride and beliefs, we are forgetting what is truly important during these tough times, at 'yun ang maging mabuting tao sa lahat,” she said.

For Soberano, the key is to be united and this does not apply only to ABS-CBN and the government but to the nation as a whole.

“Nobody is perfect and nobody ever will be, but if we choose to humble ourselves and focus on what really needs to be addressed, then maybe we can also help the world heal,” she said.

“I believe that ABS-CBN, the Senate and the Congress are all doing their best para maayos ang lahat sa tamang paraan at tamang proseso. Naniniwala ako na kung may pagkakamali o pagkukulang man ang aming istasyon, sinisikap po ng aming leaders na maisaayos po ang lahat. The same as our government officials are doing their part,” she added.
