MANILA, Philippines — The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) Grand Coalition (BGC) on Tuesday reaffirmed its commitment to ensure peace and safety across the region by implementing all peace agreements should they succeed in the 2025 elections.

The BGC is a region-wide alliance consisting of the Salaam Party led by Sulu Governor Abdusakur Tan, the Al-Ittihad Party led by former Sultan Kudarat Gov. Suharto Mangudadatu and Maguindanao del Sur Governor Bai Mariam Sangki-Mangudadatu, the Bangsamoro People’s Party led by Basilan Rep. Mujiv Hataman, and the Serbisyong Inklusibo-Alyansang Progresibo Party led by Lanao del Sur Gov. Bombit Adiong.

“Peace agreements that were signed between the two Moro fronts and the national government have given a legacy of peace to our people and the world,” Tan, the coalition’s bet for chief minister, said in a statement.

“The BARMM is a strong testament to how a longstanding conflict can be transformed into an enduring peace, and how communities can continue working together in sustaining said peace through efforts to uphold justice for all,” he added.

The BGC also committed to allocate funds from the BARMM Special Development Fund and Block Grant to support and expedite the normalization process of former Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Moro National Liberation Front combatants.

“The most important thing is to assure that our former combatants can feel the fruits of their struggle with the support of the regional and national governments, as their quality of life improves along with the enjoyment of just and lasting peace in the region,” Tan said.
