“Northern Davao Electric Cooperative Inc. has franchises in the expanded franchise areawhich will subsist until 2028 and until 2033. Yhe bill runs counter to the provisions of Section 27 of Republic Act No. 9136 of EPIRA mandating that an existing franchise shall be allowed to their full term.”

“While on its face, (HB10554 ) amends the franchise of another entity over the expanded area, (it) is a prohibited collateral attack on North Davao Electric Cooperative Inc. franchise.

“This is contrary to a jurisprudentially settled doctrine that a franchise cannot be subjected to a “collateral attack.”

“In view of these considerations, I am constrained to veto the above Enrolled Bill.”
