Here's a comparative on 2014 BBL and the 2017 versions: Arroyo House Bill 6121 and the BTC Draft.
In a news clip coming out of the Marawi Siege, a group of people was able to touch base with the Maute group. In an ongoing siege, one way to end it is to establish communication between opposing groups to explore options for conclusion. What power or influence this does this group of people carry, inspite of an active war going on, the opposing sides talked? Why did the military allow them to proceed to the enemy side? Why did the Maute Group meet them?
This is a comparative view of the 2017 Proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) submitted by the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) to Malacañang on July 17 with House Bill 4994 or the BBL originally endorsed by President Benigno Aquino III to Congress in September 2014.
Pro PolitiCS for Peace, a project started in 2015 by IAG together with PCID, LOGODEF and ZABIDA and supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), proved to be a platform for enhancing the productive role and participation of political leaders and local government units in the evolving Mindanao peace process. It has engaged political leaders in dialogue, capacity-building, researches and studies to enhance their informed and principled participation in the crafting and implementation of the roadmap and processes for sustainable peace and development in Mindanao. The project will change its name to Enpold Bangsamoro (Enhancing Political Dialogue for Inclusive Peace) beginning July 2017 to mark the start of its second phase.
