Regine Velasquez took to social media to remind her followers to vote for the leaders who will truly serve the country in the upcoming elections. 

The Philippines will elect its new set of leaders, including the presidency, in 2022. 

On her Twitter page, Regine said, "Sa susunod pong eleksyon nasa atin ang KAPANGYARIHAN ihalal ang mga nararapat na taong TOTOONG maglilingkod sa taong bayan.#IbalikAngABSCBN #KapamilyaForever."


 

 

The tweet came amid the franchise woes of her home network, ABS-CBN.

Congress is set to vote for the franchise renewal of the network following the hearings that transpired.

Regine has been one of the artists who have been vocal about her support for the embattled ABS-CBN, which went off air on television and radio after the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) issued a cease and desist order last May. 

In a separate post on Instagram, Regine expressed her gratitude to those who have been supporting the network amid the challenges.

 

 

"Maraming salamat po sa pagmamahal at suportang inyong ibinibigay kapamilya. Dasal po namin na patuloy kayong paglingkuran," she posted.

Regine officially became a Kapamilya again in October 2018 after signing a contract with ABS-CBN.

Back then, Regine clarified that the decision to move to the station is her personal decision.

“I just want to clarify. People have been saying this was his (husband Ogie Alcasid) idea. Actually, hindi. It was really me. I did ask for his help — to set up a meeting with [ABS-CBN executives]. It was really me who decided," she told the press in 2018 upon she inked a contract with the network. 

Ever since becoming a Kapamilya, Regine starred in various shows like Idol Philippines and ASAP Natin 'To

“Although I have been a Kapuso from the year 1995 until 2012 and a Kapatid from 1992-1994 and 2013-2016, I started my career as a Kapamilya. When I returned to Channel 2 in 2017, it really felt great to see old friends and be welcomed again,” he said in an Instagram post.

He added, “Though my stint with the network may not be as long as the others, I still share the same fear and anticipation of losing our jobs. It is a scary thought and an overwhelming feeling of deep sadness accompanies it."
