Multi-awarded screenwriter Jerry Gracio expressed his disappointment with the votes of Reps. Wes Gatchalian and Eric Martinez from his hometown Valenzuela.

Gracio said that these lawmakers are DDS so, they chose to vote against ABS-CBN.

Many believe that the franchise denial was motivated by the personal vendetta of President Duterte against the embattled network.

ABS-CBN journalists Tarra Quismundo and Kevin Manalo remember the 70 solons as to the people who caused the unemployment of ABS-CBN employees amidst the pandemic due to the network’s shut down.

PBB ex-housemate Justin Dizon expressed ire over these lawmakers and said that karma will reach them soon.

ABS-CBN employees will surely remember the names and faces of these Congressmen and should be ready for the upcoming election, the day of the reckoning.

During the series of hearings, ABS-CBN has cleared out all the allegations thrown against them. Despite this, Congress still voted to reject their franchise renewal bid on July 10 last year.

A year after the franchise denial, the House still refuses to release an official list of Congressmen who voted ‘Yes’ for franchise denial.

In October 2020, Rep. Eric Martinez, one of the Solons who voted against the franchise, was placed in the hot seat when he was interviewed by ANC about his vote.

The anchor asked, “Are you proud of that vote?”

“Of course, you have to stand with what your . . . With what your decision is,” Martinez replied with obvious awkwardness.

“You know, I just have to move . . . Let’s just have to move forward with it and I just leave it at that.

“I stand by my vote. It may not be popular to some . . . I just based my vote on the merits of what I saw.”



The secrecy of the list of Solons proves the turmoil with the House members’ accountability and transparency.
