Loren Legarda reveals she didn’t vote on ABS-CBN franchise. Here’s why


Contrary to circulating lists, Loren Legarda didn’t vote to deny the franchise of ABS-CBN. She didn’t participate at all in the hot issue.

The ex-senator now Antique congresswoman posted publicly her letter addressed to House Committee on Legislative Franchises chairman Chicoy Alvarez, where she explained that she is opting out of the historic vote that denied the Kapamilya network of the right to return to air.

Legarda explained that she has been the host of a documentary called “Dayaw” on ANC for years now, so she had a direct stake in this.

“I deem it appropriate to refrain from participating in view of any potential conflict of interest, whether directly or indirectly, in so promoting my advocacy through this project,” the politiko said, as she explained that she was not making any salary from the hosting gig.
