Noy Presses House BBL

  • bangsamoro-law-noynoy-aquino-6

Thank you, Magdalo party-list Rep. Francisco Ashley Acedillo, who warned against forcing the passage of the BBL, which he described as “a tough sell in Congress.”

Acedillo said lawmakers should vote on the BBL on the basis of at least three principles, including conformity to the Constitution; the benefits it will accrue to all Mindanaoans whether Muslim, Christian or lumads; and as “an expression of the ultimate will of the entire Filipino people.”

“Since we are approaching an election year, the third principle might weigh more heavily than the other two. After all, legislators serve at the pleasure of the people that vote them into office – so it would be wise to heed their will,”
