Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abgail Valte, in a Palace media briefing, assured that both panels are prepared for these “challenges.”

The Bangsamoro Basic Law is meant to create a Bangsamoro political entity that will replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

“Well, some groups have already made known their intention to challenge the Bangsamoro Basic Law,” Valte said.

“Knowing that anything that will come out of their negotiations will be challenged, they have made sure that they have the proper legal guidance while it was being crafted and that it will stand scrutiny,” she added.

Valte, meanwhile, said that the draft law will be submitted to Undersecretary Mike Musngi of the Office of the President at 5 p.m. Monday.

Malacanang hopes to have the law ratified by the end of the year or the first quarter of 2015. PNA
