On Wednesday, June 16, Minority Floor Leader Atty. Laisa Masuhud Alamia asserted the minority bloc’s support to the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) Parliament, as she sought clarifications regarding proposed amendments to the Bangsamoro Organic Law based on the Senate Committee Report on Senate Bill No. 2214.

“It is a disservice to the people of the Bangsamoro to take the collective struggle for self-determination that we waged in the vast fields and seas of the region, and reduce it into mere politicking within the halls of this parliament,” MP Alamia said. 

“Let it be clear that the success of our political transition is only possible with a united Bangsamoro government where we work together not in competition with each other, but in cooperation with one another. Only then can we secure the success of the transition, along with just and lasting peace in our region,” she added. 

The Bangsamoro parliament adopted a new calendar for its third regular session, and is set to discuss five bills and seven resolutions. The session will resume tomorrow at 1:00 in the afternoon.
