Opening Statement

By:

Dr Rahib L. Kudto

(During Public Presentation by the Third Party Monitoring Team on 26 February 2016)

As a Moro myself, I can understand the frustration of many Bangsamoro people felt after the non-passage of the BBL in Congress. For several decades, they experienced several wars that killed many of their friends and loved ones; and for the past 17 years of negotiations, they have waited patiently for the Parties to reach an agreement that would allow the Bangsamoro to exercise their right to self-determination. They had already been through so much disappointments when the ARMM failed to address their political aspirations, and when the MOA-AD was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

OPAPP Press Release February 3, 2016

Let me state the fact: The proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law, in whatever shape or form, did not make it out of the 16th Congress.

The sheer indifference and chronic absenteeism of majority of the legislators manifested in the lack of quorum almost on a daily basis in the House of Representatives, and the prolonged and repetitive interpellation of oppositors ate up the remaining sessions.

In the Senate, the intermittent absence of the bill sponsor and the remaining interpellator stalled the deliberation. Moreover, a belated change in procedure was entertained. Only last December 2015, the Senate practically conceded that the Bangsamoro bill is of local application and therefore the upper chamber should have just waited for the House version to be remanded to it.

MILF urged to reject diluted BBL and pursue independence

A total of 509 leaders gathered in Cotabato City Sunday, June 7 to petition the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to reject a watered down Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) and go back to original aspiration of the Bangsamoro people for an independent Bangsamoro state.

Dr. Ombra Imam, Deputy Secretary General for External Affairs of the League of Bangsamoro Organization (LBO) said his group has already officially submitted the petition to the offices of MILF Al Haj Murad Ebrahim, Vice Chairman Ghazali Jaafar, and chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal.  According to Dr. Imam, copy of the petition was also furnished to Malacanang, Sec. Teresita Quintos-Deles, Senate President Franklin Drinlo, and House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr.
