Jack Abas: Yes Vote will Prevail in Bangsamoro Homeland

CAMP RAJAHMUDA, Pikit, North Cotabato ------ Jack Abas, Commander of Eastern Mindanao Front, Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (BIAF-MILF), said “Yes vote will prevail in Bangsamoro Homeland.”

“The fact that I see many registrants have already filled out the COMELEC registration forms indicate the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) will be ratified by the Moro people, and the presence of our Christian brothers who have also registered here show their support to the upcoming plebiscite for the ratification of OLBARMM on January 21, 2019.”

Abas added that those who were not accommodated in this special registration can register with the COMELEC in their respective municipality.

Esmael A. Abdula, President of Kalilintad Peacebuilding Institute (KPI) stressed the need to support by all means the ratification of BOL during the plebiscite to achieve lasting peace, justice, and development in the Bangsamoro Homeland.”

Abdula encouraged the community leaders and members of United Bangsamoro Justice Party (UBJP) to conduct series of advocacy on the BOL and the importance of ratifying the law.

Despite some problems encountered during the 3-day special satellite voter registration at Camp Rajahmuda, it can be concluded that it was a success.

The objective of 3-day special satellite voter registration is to give chance to residents and BIAF members in the Bangsamoro to participate in the ratification of the OLBARMM OR R.A. Act. No. 11054 set for January 21, 2019.
