In Modest Gains We Remain Hopeful: Moving Forward with the Bangsamoro Basic Law
Despite the seemingly uphill challenge to submit a mutually acceptable BBL to the President and then Congress still before us, we at IID express our continued hope and support for the successful conclusion to this peace process begun 17 years ago. We realize that as the details become more explicit, the terms more binding, the mechanisms more complex and the pressure to deliver ever building, we all still find value in the incremental gains that continue to be tallied, and in the persistence of both panels to persevere with the task at hand. To this we can only express our admiration and say “padayon” and persevere!
