-A A +A

THE Malacañang said Sunday that the final draft of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is set to be submitted to President Benigno Aquino III on Monday.

In an interview over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said that Aquino would give high priority to review the draft bill.

"Bibigyan ito ng Pangulo ng prayoridad na atensyon upang maihain sa Kongreso ang draft Bangsamoro Basic Law sa lalong madaling panahon, alinsunod sa roadmap at timetable para sa ganap na pagtatatag ng Bangsamoro Transitional Assembly, at ang paghahalal ng mga opisyal ng Bangsamoro Political Entity kasabay sa pambansang halalan sa 2016," he said.

While there were delays in crafting the draft BBL, he said the President is determined to complete the peace process that will bring lasting peace and stability in Bangsamoro.

Coloma, however, could not tell how long the President would review the draft BBL.

Aquino earlier said that once his office submits the draft BBL to Congress, he will certify it as an urgent bill. (SDR/Sunnex)
