With the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL), “we are a step nearer to a peaceful Mindanao,” President Rodrigo R. Duterte said.
After a successful peaceful plebiscite held on Monday, January 21, 2019, and a second plebiscite scheduled on February 6, 2019, the government is looking forward to finally reap the fruits of more than a decade for the implementation of BOL.
Three administrations of exerted hard work were carefully blended to come up with the BOL.
“It is the best step towards peace ending an era of war and misunderstanding of the Moros in Mindanao. To start building peace in a community where corruption, conflict, and instability thrived for generations is a historical mark,” Pres. Duterte said.
The BOL, previously known as the Bangsamoro Basic Law and considered as one of Duterte’s biggest legislative achievements, seeks to give the Moro people basic legal tools to chart their own destiny within the country’s Constitutional framework.
