MANILA (Mabuhay) — President Benigno Aquino III will likely certify as urgent the Bangsamoro Basic Law still being crafted by the Bangsamoro Transition Commission, a Malacañang official said Tuesday.

“Lahat naman ng indikasyon ay patungo doon sa urgency,” Presidential Communications Operations Office head Herminio Coloma Jr. said during a press conference.

He issued the statement after the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) signed the last annex to the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro (FAB).

The annexes will be used as guides in the drafting of the Bangsamoro Basic Law, which is expected to result in a Bangsamoro Political Entity that will replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

Government peace panel chair Miriam Coronel-Ferrer said they hope to present the Bangsamoro Basic Law to Congress by early 2014. (MNS)
