President Benigno Aquino III would have to abide by the Senate’s timeline on the approval of the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), Senate President Franklin Drilon said, amid reports that the president gave marching orders to railroad the bill without amending its provisions.
“We will not dilute it. We will examine it closely and modify the provisions which we believe are not consistent with the Constitution. Yan po ang aming gagawin, I don’t think dilution is the correct term but we have to modify and look at each provision carefully,” Drilon told reporters.
Drilon said it is their responsbility as elected representatives of the public to look into each contentious provision of the BBL, the product of the peace deal between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
“It will not be passed untouched. And I think that the MILF recognizes that. May input, may sariling pananaw ang mga elected representatives, amin pong titingnan nang husto iyan,” the senator said.
Senate deliberations on the Bangsamoro law have been suspended following the bloody Mamasapano police operation which led to the deaths of 44 elite troopers.
