MANILA, Philippines–The Moro Islamic Liberation Front on Friday said that the composition of the members of its Transition Commission, which would work on the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law, would be “well-balanced and representative of the major blocs of the MILF and tribes in Mindanao.”

This was according to MILF Secretariat chair Muhammad Ameen, in a statement posted on luwaran.com, the official website of the MILF Central Committee on Information.

The government and the MILF will select the 15 members of the commission–eight will be chosen by the MILF and seven by the government.

The TC will work on the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law based on the comprehensive peace agreement to be completed this year.

The comprehensive peace agreement is comprised of the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro and the annexes to the Framework on power sharing, wealth sharing and normalization.

The Framework Agreement, which outlines the general features of the political settlement between the government and the MILF, was signed in Malacañang last month.

The peace panels hope to complete the annexes in their next round of formal talks in Kuala Lumpur in December.

Ameen said the MILF’s members in the TC would include one woman and one member of the indigenous tribes.

He also said that the MILF had its own selection committee which did not allow “recommendations” to be made so as not to “disrupt” the MILF’s selection process.

Ameen said that the MILF’s selection committee considered only two qualifications for the nominees to the TC.

These were “dedication, commitment, and loyalty to the cause” and having the “capability to discharge the duties and responsibilities required of the job.”

According to Ameen, the second criterion was “indispensable” as it included “the experience in various engagements in the MILF-led struggle.”

    The government and the MILF will select the 15 members of the
    commission–eight will be chosen by the MILF and seven by the government.

    Bakit mas marami ang MILF, eh sila ang rebelde?
    Pati ba naman dito, nalamangan pa rin ang gobyerno.
    Parang walang katapusang pandedehado ang aabutin ng Pilipno sa kasunduang ito.

      Napansin ko rin ito. Kapag may botohan lagi silang panalo. ‘Yan ba ang tinatawag nilang “well-balanced”? Hmmmmm, hello Justice Leonen??? Are you there? Hello? Well-balanced po ba ito? DAPAT SURIIN ITO NG MABUTI.

      I think they will dissolve the useless ARMM and replace it with the new one. This is MILF driven govt. They will be allowed to draft their own laws under their controlled regions but retaining the right to the govt to Police and Military control over the area. But if you ask me it was not the law problem here, anyway let us give them a chance. After all this is a free world. Hope for the best! God speed! ~_^

      Ang lahat ng bagay ay may wisdom. Cguro nman mas matalinong di hamak si AJ Leonen at higit pa si Pres. PNOY kaysa sa iyo. Eh bakit hindi mo kaya isipin. Sige nga? Magbubuho sila ng patakaran para sa mga Bangsamoro at gusto mo pa kahit yung para sa kanila na ay makikisawsaw ka. Inagaw na natin ang lupain nila sa Mindanao at ipinagpipilitan pa rin ng iba ang sarili nila. Kaya nga nagkakagulo kasi ipinagpipiitan natin yung hindi para sa atin. Siguro getz mo na?

    There are still so much issues to be dealt with but it is to the benefit of both sides to do this in peace. Good luck to everyone involved.

    Make peace a priority. China is knocking. Muslim warriors will be needed for the potential struggle ahead.
