Dureza Confident BBL Will Hurdle Constitutionality Question

 

Manila, Philippines, MINA — Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Jesus Dureza expressed confidence that the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) to be signed into law by President Duterte tomorrow will hurdle questions on constitutionality.

Dureza said ‎the government is expecting critics to question the legality of the BBL before the Supreme Court.

“There will be some who might question it. No, I’m not worried because we hear it from the initial critics of the BBL in the Senate. They themselves have said,” Dureza said on Friday during an interview with “The Chiefs” on One News Cignal TV.

Dureza mentioned Sen. Franklin Drilon as one of the critics in the Senate.
“He (Drilon) was very concerned about this issue. But now, after all of those things have been done, he said he is confident it will hurdle constitutional issues,” Dureza said.

Despite the support, Dureza said the government cannot really stop some people from going to the Supreme Court.

“There are really some people who will go to the Supreme Court. We are not expecting. I hope they don’t. But we cannot stop it,” he said.

Dureza said the implementation of the BBL would encounter a problem once the SC issues a temporary restraining order. (TRO).

“The problem there is when the Supreme Court issued a TRO. ‎Our timetable will stop from there,” Dureza said.

The BBL is set to replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) with the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).(T/RS5/RS1)
