Trabaho lang! Marcoleta unmoved by LizQuen’s meet and greet offer
SAGIP party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta is dead set in voting against ABS-CBN’s franchise application despite the kind words he received from Kapamilya stars Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, whose television series he has admitted to watching.
At the summation of arguments for and against ABS-CBN Thursday (July 9), Marcoleta thanked the couple for their message to him and his wife.
Gil and Soberano had thanked Marcoleta for sharing at a recent congressional hearing that he and his wife watched their series, “Make It With You.”
The lawmaker said he and his wife watched the television series together because the latter didn’t want to watch it alone.
“Cute na cute po kami ni Quen sa kinuwento niyo pong journey niyo na sinasamahan niyo lagi siya at sinusuportahan niyo po siya sa panonood ng ‘Make It With You.’ We would really love to meet you, especially Mrs. Marcoleta soon,” Soberano said.
The actress appealed to Marcoleta, a staunch ABS-CBN critic, to give the network another chance.
“Gusto lang po naming kumatok sa puso niyo na baka sakaling mabigyan niyo ng chance ang ABS-CBN,” Soberano said.
Her appeal, however, fell on deaf ears. “”Naramdaman ko ang kanilang katapatan. Sana ganoon po ang ABS-CBN,” Marcoleta said.
“Sa kanilang dalawa, alam ko na nauunawaan nila na ito po ay tawag lang ng tungkulin, at hinahangad ko ang higit na tagumpay para sa kanila sa mga darating na panahon,” he added.
The House legislative franchises committee is expected to vote soon on ABS-CBN’s franchise application after 12 marathon hearings.
