“Give Us Our Government”: MILF 1st Vice Chairman Jaafar

‘Three years after the signing the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) on March 27, 2014, Congress has yet to pass a law that would establish a new autonomous Bangsamoro political entity, and MILF's patience is wearing thin”, GMA online news said in its report on March 29.

“Everything has been said to the government, and we do not know what to say except give us our government”, Ghazali Jaafar, MILF 1st Vice Chairman, and concurrent Chair of the Bangsamaoro Commission (BTC) said during the 3rd year commemoration of the signing of Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) on March 27 at Waterfront Insular Hotel, Davao City.

Jaafar stressed that Mohagher Iqbal has said it in the past, and the MILF Central Committee had been ordered to relay the same during the previous meetings of the peace panels.

The MILF is counting on the popularity of President Rodrigo Duterte, both in Congress and with the public, to give the BBL a second chance.

Duterte hails from Mindanao and claims to have a Moro blood.

The BTC has a self-imposed deadline of May 18 to come up with the BBL in time for a new Congress in July.

"The MILF remains to be an Islamic revolutionary government of the Bangsamoro people. The MILF does not intend to give away its guns until the Bangsamoro issue is resolved," Jaafar said as quoted by GMA News.
