President Benigno Aquino III has ordered the lawmakers he met with last Monday not to “dilute” the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) too much for fear it might not be acceptable to the Bangsamoro people.

This was disclosed by Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, chairman of the 75-member ad hoc committee deliberating on the BBL, after Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza claimed to have received information that the President wanted to have the BBL passed without any amendments.

“He (Aquino) was concerned that it may not be acceptable to the Bangsamoro and not promote peace if we dilute it too much. It may not serve its purpose,” Rodriguez said.

However, the Mindanao lawmaker said Aquino understood that the House and Senate will have to remove unconstitutional provisions in the measure.

Leaders of both chambers of Congress eye the passage of an amended BBL by June, before the legislative adjourns sine die.

Rodriguez’s panel plans to resume deliberations on the Bangsamoro bill by March 3 after receiving the report of the Philippine National Police Board of Inquiry regarding its investigation into the Mamasapano incident.
