President Duterte may be abusing his authority after openly threatening to block the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN television network.

Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay said the President’s decision merely stemmed from his dislike for the media giant.

“Mr. Duterte says he would see to it that ABS-CBN’s franchise will not be renewed. Why? Simply because he doesn’t like ABS-CBN,” he tweeted.
“By exercise of presidential prerogative he seeks, with an ‘evil eye & uneven hand,’ to destroy a media company. This is blatant abuse of public power,” he said.
