PHILIPPINES BANGSAMORO POLLS IN 2016?

Labels:
President Benigno Aquino III assured participants of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) International Conference on the consolidation for peace for Mindanao that there will be free elections in the Bangsamoro in 2016.
This, even if his administration has yet to submit to Congress a draft Bangsamoro Basic Law that will institutionalize the comprehensive agreement signed with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) which will mandate that election.
This is why my administration will work doubly hard to ensure that free, peaceful, and democratic elections for the Bangsamoro government will take place come 2016, Aquino said.
He stressed that his government will continue to take on programs and implement projects that will empower more Filipinos to contribute to the growth of our nation. 
"This is why, even in the face of immense challenge and difficulty, the Filipino people will continue to tread the straight and righteous path to progress—because we know that true, inclusive growth affects individuals, communities, nations, and the entire world," Aquino said.
  • Early in his presidency, Aquino met with MILF Chair Al Haj Murad Ebrahim in Japan to reinvigorate the peace negotiations that ultimately led to the agreement aimed at ending the secessionist movement in Mindanao.
  • The President noted that just like what happened to Japan after World War II, former combatants can become partners in peace and development. Japan and the United States became treaty allies after the war.
  • Aquino, likewise, reminded everyone that there shouldn't have to be another nuclear war to achieve peace.
Aquino noted that for the Bangsamoro in particular, the Japan-Bangsamoro Initiatives for Reconstruction and Development (J-BIRD) has funded around 15.1 billion yen or P6.6 billion worth of projects.
This will redound not only to the development of livelihood and industry, but more importantly to the empowerment of my brothers and sisters in the Bangsamoro allowing them to take hold of their destinies and 
bring their families, communities, and ultimately 
our nation to greater heights, Aquino said.
