Bangsamoro will be upright – Jaafar
Bangsamoro Transition Commission chair Ghadzali Jaafar assured the public on Sunday that the Bangsamoro government would be upright.
Pressed for some kind of assurance he could the public, Jaafar said it was not a “material thing”.
“Mahirap yang tanong mo kasi hindi katulad ng isang material na bagay pwede mong ipakita ang ebidensya. Ito wala tayong ebidensya na ipakita sa publiko,” Jaafar said in an interview with Radyo Inquirer 990 AM.
“But I think it’s enough that we give our assurance that this government is different from the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM),” he added.
President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Thursday that he had signed the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL).
The BOL intends to replace the existing poverty-and-conflict-wracked autonomous region with a potentially larger, better-funded and more powerful region called Bangsamoro ARMM for the minority Muslims. /cbb
