Pnoy Signs Landmark Framework Agreement with MILF


The government of President Noynoy Aquino ends today what is the last of the insurgencies that the country have suffered through the years by signing a preliminary pact termed as the framework agreement with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

In the words of President Aquino, the signing of this peace agreement connotes triumph over decades old conflict that had stymied peace and development in Mindanao, and the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives.

“We now all share the triumph of this agreement”, President Aquino said in the Philippine Daily Inquirer after the deal was signed 3 o’ clock in the afternoon this day.

In representation of the MILF, MILF Chief Al Haj Murad Ebrahim expressed satisfaction and gratitude. In his own words: “Today, I extend the hand of friendship to the Filipino people… today we are here to put an end to the adversarial relationship between the Bangsamoro and the Philippine nation. Today it humbles me to say before you, we stayed our course, perseverance has prevailed.”

In 1989, the government had instituted Republic Act No. 6734 otherwise known as the ARMM Organic Act to settle differences with the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and in 2007, the administration of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo moved to repeal the Anti-Subversion Law and allowed a mellowing of conflict with the Communist party of the Philippines (CPP) specially with its armed-sector the National People’s Army.

But with the signing of the framework agreement, certain issues have been brought out into the open, especially on the powers given the new entity which is simply called “Bangsamoro” and the so-called “ministerial” form of its governance.

Some legal experts such as Senator Juan Ponce Enrile and Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago had pointed out how these new agreements could be in violation of the provision of our Constitution.

Thereon, these arising issues need to be settled and ironed out in order for the agreement to be truly accomplished and ‘triumphant’.
