Rody gets BBL draft to­day

Tempo - - News - (Ge­na­lyn D. Ka­bil­ing)

The fi­nal draft of the Bangsamoro Ba­sic Law will for­mally be turned over to Pres­i­dent Duterte dur­ing a cer­e­mony in Mala­cañang to­day.

The doc­u­ment will be pre­sented to the Pres­i­dent by the Bangsamoro Tran­si­tion Com­mis­sion which drafted the pro­posed BBL in the past few months.

“We are con­fi­dent that the BTC that crafted the new one must have taken into ac­count the fail­ures of the past, learn­ing from the past lessons,” pres­i­den­tial ad­viser on the peace process Je­sus Dureza said.

Dureza said he would rec­om­mend to the Pres­i­dent to cer­tify the bill as ur­gent for its swift pas­sage in Congress. He said the Pres­i­dent could re­view the draft BBL and give his in­puts or im­me­di­ately trans­mit the doc­u­ment as is to Congress for de­lib­er­a­tion.
