MANILA, Philippines – The Senate committee on public services is tackling measures that would renew or extend media giant ABS-CBN’s franchise on Monday, February 24, ahead of the House of Representatives.

To date, there are 12 pending House bills seeking the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise, which will expire on March 30.

Solicitor General Jose Calida had filed a quo warranto petition seeking to void the network’s franchise, citing “highly abusive practices.” He later moved to gag ABS-CBN on the case.

ABS-CBN has denied that it violated the law.
