Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is completely neutral on the issue of ABS-CBN franchise renewal.
Roque said that Duterte wants his allies in the House of Representatives to ‘vote as your conscience dictates.’
“Ang paninindigan ng Presidente neutral po siya diyan. Huwag kayong mag-alala mga congressmen, hindi po magagalit o matutuwa ang Presidente kung ipasa ang prangkisa ng ABS-CBN,” Roque added.
He said that the leader is ‘completely neutral’ and that he will not intervene with their decision.
