Conferring the honor, and representing Mindanao’s Bangsamoro,  on Zubiri were Al Haj Murad Ebrahim, Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)  chairman, and Muslimin Sema, Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) chairman. The event was witnessed by Mindanao political leaders led by House Deputy Leader Representative Bai Sandra Sema, civil society groups and stakeholders in the Mindanao peace movements.

PRESIDENT DUTERTE SIGNS BOL INTO LAW

The BOL is part of the Duterte administration’s agenda to achieve national reconciliation with the MILF and MNLF, the major Moro rebel groups in Mindanao whose progress, development and peace had been hobbled for decades by the Moro Insurgency.

Formerly known as the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), the BOL is a  product of years of peace negotiations with the Moro revolutionary groups, stakeholders in Mindanao and foreign partners sharing the quest for lasting peace in the Philippines’ southern island.
