Zamboangueño Bar topnotcher Atty. Vic R. Solis is urging Zamboangueño residents to follow Bicameral discussions on the Bangsamoro Law which will start this July.

In an interview with RMN Zamboanga, Atty.Solis said that the "bicam is a very important committee who will scrutinize in finality the two versions of the proposed BBL law from the Senate and the House of Representatives, as both chambers have already submitted their respective versions of the said law.”

In the same interview, Solis underscored the role to be played by First District Congressman Celso Lobregat during the Bicameral sessions.

"Alyi na bicam si Mr.Lobregat hay lleva el lucha suyu para rempuja con el mga provision pabor con el Zamboanga," Solis said.

Although Solis noted the present local controversies on the membership of Lobregat in the bicam as raised by his political critics, it is true that his representation is very important in the committee which decides the final law.

"Masquin cosa ya tu hace alyi na Congreso y na Senado,pero si hinde conese adopta na bicam, all your efforts will be useless,queda se por nuay nada, poreso tupao que talyi si Mr.Lobregat. Ta aprova yo que talyi ele na bicam for the for the drafting of the final version, it is a wise decision," Solis said.

Solis said having a non-political opinion as a Zamboangueño, after his thorough study on the two versions of the proposed BBL law, it is the people of Zamboanga who will be affected in the future.

The veteran lawyer also said that the critics of Mr. Lobregat is normal to react on his actions, because whatever he does, those people will really criticize him and it is given.

Solis said that based on his gathered information, the bicam is expected to meet on the 1st or 2nd week of July.

He also expects the ratified version from the two chambers on July 23.

Solis urged the Zamboangeños to watch closely the performance of Mr.Lobregat in the bicam-defending the best interest of our city to be excluded in whatever provisions he think that will affect our future.

Solis said that although they have so many differences in opinion in the past with Mr.Lobregat,he recognizes the very important role the solon has to play as our "ACE" in the ratification of the BBL law. (Bhong Simbajon/RMN News)
