Calls for a people's initiative intensified following Congress' decision to kill ABS-CBN's hopes of returning on air. Some lawyers said such a move is feasible as one survey showed 3 in every 4 Filipinos are in favor of granting the Philippine media giant a new franchise.

But other legal experts believe the roadblocks for such an initiative may not even be worth the effort. Even Malacañang does not believe it can be done. - The World Tonight, ANC, July 13, 2020
