President Rodrigo Duterte will sign the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which was renamed as Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) “any time now” as soon as he receives the copy of the consolidated  version, Malacañang said on Thursday.

“I was with him [Wednesday night]. So any time now, he can actually sign as soon as we receive the consolidated version of the proposed Republic Act. The President can sign,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a Palace briefing.


The bicameral conference committee approved on Wednesday night the reconciled version of the BOL.

Palace thanked Congress for its passage.


“Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa ating mga mambabatas at sa mga miyembro ng Bangsamoro Transition Council dahil natapos na po ang bicameral conference ng BBL. At dahil natapos po sila ng kanilang bicameral conference, meron na pong malalagdaan na BBL ang Presidente bago po ang kanyang Sona sa darating na Lunes,” Roque said.

(We thank the lawmakers and the members of the Bangsamoro Transition Council because they finished the bicameral conference of the BBL. And because they finished it, the President now has a BBL to sign before his Sona this coming Monday.) /je
