CONGRESS ONLINE POLL

The House of Representatives is now crafting the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which would formalize into law the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro autonomous entity, after an agreement reached by the Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), to replace the autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. stressed that the BBL would bring just and lasting peace to Mindanao and usher in a new era of meaningful peace and sustainable inclusive development not only in the South but the entire country.

"We are tired of war. We cannot afford to waste time. We want peace," declared Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee tasked to review, evaluate and craft a prooposed BBL for final action by Congress.
