Hundreds of employees joined Monday a prayer rally for the renewal of ABS-CBN Corps's broadcast franchise, ahead of a Senate inquiry into supposed violations that the government's top lawyer cited in a move to close the country's largest media network. 

The Senate committee hearing is scheduled on the same day the network responded to Solicitor General Jose Calida’s quo warranto petition to take it off the air. 

House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano had said the inquiry might violate a constitutional provision that franchise bills should be tackled first by the lower chamber of Congress before the Senate.
