Despite the waning support for the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law in Congress, government peace panel chair Miriam Coronel Ferrer still eyes the passage of the measure by June 11.

Ferrer on Friday stressed the need “to follow the road map” to ensure elections in the envisioned Bangsamoro region will be synchronized with the 2016 national elections.

“The lawmakers must take an extra mile [to pass the BBL],” she told the Manila Standard.

Ferrer said President Benigno Aquino III is optimistic that the BBL can be passed by June 11, before Congress adjourns sine die. However, she admitted she is uncertain if the President will ask lawmakers to hold special sessions to deliberate on the BBL since it remains stuck in the committee level.

Congress will adjourn on March 18 and resume sessions in early May.

Even though the BBL’s passage might be later than the administration’s original schedule of March, Ferrer said the government “could make enhancements along the way” to ensure elections in the Bangsamoro region will push through next year.
