GOVERNMENT CHIEF negotiator Miriam Coronel-Ferrer said that there’s no giving up in getting candidates in the May 2016 elections to support the peace agreement the Aquino administration had signed with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

The government and the MILF signed the peace agreement, called Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB), in March 2014 in a bid to finally end the decades old conflict in Mindanao.

The CAB paved the way for the crafting of the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), the key measure that would create a new Bangsamoro region, but is now unlikely to be passed under the Aquino administration.

“We will continue to convince those running for public office that the CAB already provides a viable roadmap and comprehensive approach. It is a mutually agreed way forward,” Ferrer told the INQUIRER in a text message. Nikko Dizon
