What Is Comprehensive Agreement On The Bangsamoro

The CAB is a five-page, 12-point text document that represents the final peace agreement between the GPH and the MILF. PASIG CITY, 8 March 2019 – The government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) are working on the formulation of the Implementing Regulations (TRI) of the draft Executive Decree on the path to normalization under the 2014 Bangsamoro Comprehensive Agreement (CAB). The president`s peace adviser, Carlito G. Galvez Jr., said the two sides are working twice to ensure the successful implementation of the programs as part of the normalization of the peace agreement. (more…) On October 15, 2012, the Philippine government signed a high-profile document presented as a framework agreement on the Bangsamoro that culminated in the Aquino government`s efforts to end the blockade in the peace process. The new document, which only provides a general framework for the actual peace negotiations, announced that “the status quo is unacceptable and that the Bangsamoro should be created to replace the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). The Bangsamoro was the new autonomous political entity (NPE) mentioned in the decision points of the April 2012 Principles. According to President Aquino, it was the agreement that “finally sealed a real and lasting peace in Mindanao.” [15] Bangsamoro replaced the ARMM, which was described by President Benigno Aquino III as a “failed experiment.” [16] JICA congratulates the Philippine government and the MILF on this historic agreement, which represents an opportunity to move closer to real peace and sustainable prosperity. It is JICA`s sincere desire to continue to support conflict-affected areas through the support of the new Bangsamoro government to strengthen institutions and develop human resources, improve people`s livelihoods and improve regional development in the medium and long term.

“Sealing the comprehensive agreement is important not only for the Bangsamoro, the people of Mindanao and all other Filipino citizens, all of whom can be conquered as one country continuing its unfinished task of nation-building.” – Prof. Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, Chair of the GPH Peace Committee He also reaffirms the commitment of both parties to the following agreements/documents: Instead of bringing together Muslim leaders, this agreement further fragmented the MNLF,[13] as some factions within the group preferred independence to autonomy.
