Secretary Jesus G. Dureza, Presidential Adviser on Peace Process, said that the government is working on the replacement of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) based on the Comprehensive Agreement of the Bangsamoro (CAB) in order to install a new Bangsamoro government unit.

Dureza was in town in a speaking engagement with a media group in Iligan.

Dureza told the media August 10 at the lobby of a local hotel here that the new government unit will be part of a bigger federal states. He said the non-approval of the BBL is due to constitutional issues.

“We have to address the constitutional issues and enhance the Bangsamoro Organic Act,” he stressed.

Dureza said the OPAPP will meet with the key players of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and other stakeholders to put together all their sentiments and ideas taking into consideration the consensus points and using the comprehensive approach.

“We are already in the implementation stage,” he pointed out.

Dureza said the government will soon appoint the members of the Bangsamoro Transition Commission.

On the peace talks with the New People’s Army (NPA), the Secretary said that the government will meet with leaders of the National Democratic Front (NDF) of the New People’ Army (NPA) in Norway on August 23, 2016. tnrs
