Once passed into law, BBL would be questioned before the SC as some groups want to derail it-Zubiri

Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri expects that once the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is signed into law, it would be questioned before the Supreme Court (SC) as some political clans and groups allegedly want to derail the BBL, said an article posted today on Inquirer.Net.

At the weekly Kapihan sa Senado Forum, Zubiri said, “I am sure may magpa-file laban dito sa Korte Supreme pag napirmahan na. I’m sure about it because there are political clans who want this derailed. There are certain groups that don’t want to see this approved because this would change the landscape in the autonomous region.” 

In the same article by Inquirer.Net, Zubiri defended the anti-political dynasty provision they included in their BBL version.

In the Senate version, political families up to the second degree of consanguinity would be banned from holding any position in the Bangsamoro parliament.

“Another failure to pass the BBL could lead to conflict,” Zubiri warned.
