Sen Franklin Drilon said negotiators from the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) had promised to craft the draft bill carving out a new Bangsamoro region in Southern Philippines in 10 days by last Sunday. “Assuming they can come up with a final version by the end of the month, we will work double time. I think the first quarter of next year is a reasonable period within which to pass this law,” he told a press forum at the Diamond Hotel. Inquirer

Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa was seen in the hotel while ARMM governor Mujiv Hataman also arrived at the venue. Both Iqbal and Ferrer would neither confirm nor deny that they met with Ochoa. The MILF said both parties had been faithful to the previously signed documents, including the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro, the Annexes and the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro.  Inquirer
