The Bangsamoro people should unite for the May 9 polls to vote a presidential candidate — one that would not let people suffer past atrocities. Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) Minister of Education Mohagher Iqbal said.

“Collectively, we should once again be one body for a single cause of choosing a worthy candidate for the position of President of the Republic of the Philippines: a candidate who will preserve and defend the Bangsamoro cause,” Iqbal tsaid in a privilege speech at the session of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority Parliament onThursday, March 17.

“A candidate who will assure that our women and children will not suffer the atrocities of the past, and instead wake up to a bright and colorful future brought about by living in a peaceful, harmonious, and developed community,” said Iqbal, former head of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) peace panel.

He said the Bangsamoro government should not support a candidate who does honor the sacrifices of the Moro people.

“We cannot support a candidate who will bring back the horrors of the past, or not honor the sacrifices of our brothers and sisters. We should choose a president who is a friend of the Bangsamoro people,” he said.

Go made this remark during the ceremonial signing of the BOL on Monday at the Malacañang Palace in the presence of several lawmakers and members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC).

The BOL was signed by President Rodrigo R. Duterte on July 27, 2018, days after it was ratified by the Senate and House of Representatives.

Ang pagpirma ni Pangulong Duterte sa BOL ay nagsisilbing pagsisimula ng katapusan ng kaguluhan at paghihirap sa Mindanao. Ibig sabihin, dito po natin makikita na kung may political will ang president, walang impo-imposible (President Duterte’s signing of the BOL signals the end of war and misery in Mindanao. This means nothing is impossible with a president who has political will),” Go said.

He encouraged all Filipinos to take part in the next steps that the Bangsamoro Organic Law will face.

Under the new law, a plebiscite will be held in the Bangsamoro between 90 and 150 days after its effectivity.

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) earlier expressed support for Go’s senatorial bid and thanked  President Duterte’s top aide  for his help in facilitating in Congress and the Office of the President the process of approving BOL formerly named Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL).
