The joint hearing of the House Committee on Legislative Franchises and the Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability tackled the citizenship of ABS-CBN chairman emeritus Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III who attended the meeting via zoom on Wednesday. The committees are chaired by Rep. Franz Alvarez (1st District, Palawan) and Rep. Jose Antonio Sy-Alvarado (1st District, Bulacan), respectively. One of the requirements in the grant of a franchise is that media ownership must be 100 percent Filipino. Lopez was born in the Unites States to Filipino parents.
