Calling on Congress

Press freedom advocates gather in front of ABS-CBN Corp.’s headquarters in Quezon City as they call on Congress to tackle the bills seeking the network’s franchise renewal on Friday. Former Chief Justice Reynato Puno said earlier during an interview that as per the Public Telecommunications Policy Act of the Philippines, an NTC permit ordered by Congress would allow ABS-CBN to remain on air. 

Congress is set to adjourn for the Lenten break on March 14 and reconvene in May.
