Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque has assured Zamboangueños that Zamboanga city is not included in the territory for the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law.

“Wala kayo sa kahit anong version na nakasalang sa Congreso. Walang ni isang panukalang batas na nagsasama sa Zamboanga City doon sa Bangsa Moro entity,” Roque assured.

According to Roque, Zamboangueños must not be afraid because if Zamboanga will be included in the Bangsa Moro entity, then Davao will most likely be included because Davao is near Maguindanao which is the seat of power of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

Zamboanga city though near Basilan and Sulu is not considered contiguous, according to Roque.

“Walang posibilidad ang Davao na mapasali sa BBL wala din sigurong posibilidad na ang Zamboanga ay mapabilang sa Bangsa Moro entity,” Roque stressed.

Meanwhile, Roque said that the current BBL  is better because it is more inclusive.

The government is talking to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, Moro National Liberation Front and the lumads.

“Yan ang pagkakaiba pag ang pangulo mo ay taga Mindanao. Nakakintindi siya na ang kapayapaan ay hindi posible kung hindi mo kakausapin ang lahat,” Roque said. (RGAAGo)
