    Phl: Bangsamoro Basic Law a priority

    PHILIPPINE President Benigno Aquino III will give due priority to the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) once it reaches his office, a Palace official on Sunday said.
    Presidential Communication Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. in an interview over dzRB Radio-Manila that Malacanang Palace will submit the draft of the BBL to Congress the soonest possible time.
    Coloma said the government peace panel and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) both issued a statement that they will submit the draft to Malacanang on 18 August 2014.
    Based on the timetable, there is still ample time for ratification of the BBL in Congress, in time for the establishment of the Bangsamoro Transitional Assembly and a plebiscite in 2016.
    The Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro was signed on March 27. The agreement ended the decades-long conflict that claimed the lives of hundreds of people in Muslim Mindanao, Southern Philippines.
