“I vote YES to the resolution DENYING the application of ABS-CBN’s application for a new franchise.”

Zamboanga Rep. Divina Grace Yu has drawn flak from the netizens after voting “Yes” to the committee resolution denying the ABS-CBN franchise.

In her social media post, Yu proudly shared her vote on the ABS-CBN franchise application even saying she’s a die-hard ABS-CBN fan.

“Sukad bata pa ko, makig-away jud ko basta naay mosaway sa ABSCBN. Maglagot jud ko Sa akong best friends Sa high school ug college kay GMA sila.

“Unsaon dili man gud maabot ang GMA Sa Balintawak sauna unya dili pod mi ka afford ug cable tv. Hangtod naminyo nalang ko, naa na mi cable pero ABSCBN lang gihapon ko – diehard.”

However, after considering the 12 hearings she said with a heavy heart she voted against the Kapamilya network.

“But after attending series of committee hearings and after reading the resolution of the committee, with a heavy heart,

“I vote YES to the resolution DENYING the application of ABS-CBN’s application for a new franchise.”

She also added that she hopes, another big company will replace ABS-CBN and absorb the 11k employees that will stand to lose their jobs.

“With my vote, I fervently pray that another big company, loyal to our country, will be given a new franchise who will absorb the artists of ABS-CBN including the 11,000 displaced employees and will continue the programs of Channel 2 para padayon atong mga ka lipay Sa pagtan-aw sa maong mga programa.”
