Congressman Celso Lobregat will be conducting a public forum today (Saturday) here in Zamboanga City to explain to the people the provisions of the Organic Law for the Bangsamoro of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao or most commonly known as the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL).

Lobregat cordially invites the public from all walks of life to attend the forum in order to be able to listen to the facts of the  Bangsamoro Law, which will be held at around 9 a.m. at the Zamboanga City State Polytechnic College (ZCSPC) Gymnasium in Baliwasan Seaside.

The solon said that the process in coming up with the final version of the BBL Law has been very rough and he himself passed thru the needle of scrutiny and debates in amending unconstitutional and contested provisions of the said new legislation.

"I wanted the people of Zamboanga to understand the truth and the facts about this sensitive issue in order to avoid speculations and misconceptions," Lobregat stressed.

Lobregat said that this BBL Forum aims to update all Zamboange√Īos about the said controversial law.

"The public should be aware about this final BBL Law because it will be them who will take a stand in case a plebiscite will be conducted relative to this legislation," Lobregat pointed out.

Congressman Lobregat is appealing to the public to participate in this important forum as a concerned citizen who loves Zamboanga City.

The forum is open to the public and it will also be aired live in the leading radio and television networks in the city. -Dexter Yap
