Former Cabinet Secretary Rigoberto Tiglao suspects House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano railroaded the passage of a provisional franchise for ABS-CBN so he can use the network to further his political ambition.

In his May 15 column for the Manila Times, Tiglao said Cayetano defied Duterte by authoring House Bill 6732, which will give ABS-CBN a provisional franchise valid until October 31, 2020.

The bill was passed on second reading on May 13, the same day it was filed and tackled by the House convened as the committee of the whole.

Tiglao said Cayetano’s motives were suspect as he even lambasted the National Telecommunications Commission and Solicitor General Jose Calida for working to shut ABS-CBN down, even if they were both part of the administration.

“Why did he lash out at two of Duterte’s officials so viciously, saying Solicitor General Jose Calida and National Telecommunications Commission head Gamaliel Cordoba will have their “day of reckoning”? Had he told the Lopezes that he had everything under control, and when Cordoba issued the cease-and-desist order, was he so embarrassed he couldn’t deliver what he promised the oligarch that he vented his anger at the two?” Tiglao asked.

The former Cabinet Secretary said Cayetano might want to use ABS-CBN to keep the speakership until 2022 and for his possible presidential bid in the next national elections.

“Is defending ABS-CBN his calculus that with the broadcast firm’s all-out support for him, Duterte will be forced to retain him as speaker, thereby junking the agreement made a year ago for term-sharing with Rep. Lord Alan Velasco? And more strategically, for ABS-CBN to make him its new, improved Manuel Roxas 2nd for the presidential elections in 2022?” Tiglao asked.

He said Cayetano is mistaken if he assumes ABS-CBN will guarantee him a victory in the 2022 elections as there will be other factors at play if he decides to run for higher office.
