BBL must address aspiration for peace and justice says GPH chief negotiator

Feb. 23, 2015

Government of the Philippines (GPH) peace panel chair Professor Miriam Coronel-Ferrer today asked Congress “to enshrine and protect the people’s aspirations for peace and justice as envisioned in the 1987 Philippine Constitution ‎when it considers changes to the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law.”

According to the statement of the Constitutional framers, “the core principle of the 1987 Constitution in mandating a special status for the autonomous regions is human development.” ‎

“Definitely, it is the aim of the BBL to fulfill this intent. To address the human development of the Bangsamoro people, which will in turn redound to shared prosperity and shared security for the entire country,” Coronel-Ferrer said.‎


“In this regard, we look up to our legislators for wisdom and guidance, in crafting a good legislation ‎for the Bangsamoro peoples,” she said. ‎
