Matapos maging mabunga ang 2014 o Year of Peace, inaasahan ni Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Secretary Teresita Quintos Deles na maipapasa ang Bangsamoro Basic Law ngayong 2015.
“This coming year, with the expected passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law by Congress and its anticipated ratification by the people in the core territory as well as complementary movements in the normalization process, we will see the rise of the Bangsamoro that shall serve as the anchor of lasting peace and prosperity not just for the Bangsamoro but for the entire country,” pahayag ni Deles.
Aniya, nagsilbing matibay na pundasyon para makamit ang kaayusan, kapayapaan at kasaganaan sa Bangsamoro region ang paglagda ng gobyerno at ng Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) sa Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) noong nakalipas na taon.
“In other areas of the country, positive strides have also been made in the name of peace. Three years after its signing, the implementation of the Memorandum of Agreement between the Government and the Cordillera Bodong Administration/ Cordillera People’s Liberation Army (CBA/ CPLA) has entered its final phase. The group has now transformed itself into a legitimate, SEC-registered, unarmed, socio-economic organization called the Cordillera Forum for Peace and Development (CFPD),” ani Deles.
“In the Visayas, the Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Manggagawa-Pilipinas/ Revolutionary Proletarian Army/Alex Boncayao Brigade Tabara-Paduano Group (RPM-P/RPA/ABB TPG)—a splinter group of the armed wing of the communist rebels—has completed the draft of its Closure Agreement with Government that is undergoing due diligence review for signing in early 2015. Similar to the transformation of the CFPD, the RPM-P/RPA/ABB TPG, through the party-list Abang Lingkod, has chosen to take the road to peace by pursuing political and social change without the use of arms,” ulat ni Deles.
