Deles commends 1987 constitution framers support to BBL

Jan. 14, 2015

The Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process welcomed Wednesday the statement of support issued by the framers of the 1987 Philippine Constitution saying this will inspire Congress to “pave the way”  for the holding of a plebiscite prior to the establishment of the Bangsamoro new entity.

Secretary Teresita Deles said she believed that the legislators “will take the high road in enabling confidence and hope to overcome cynicism, and political daring to overcome fear”.

Fourteen framers of the 1987 Constitution signed a statement last January 9 which expressed full support on the creation of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region.

“There is no better way to demonstrate our commitment to peace and development than by giving the Bangsamoro people the opportunity to create a higher and better future for themselves than what they have,” the statement read.
