GRP-MILF MOA over Ancestral Domain

The issuance of the Temporary Restraining Order or TRO by the Philippines Supreme Court (SC) caused the cancellation of the ceremonial signing of the Memorandum of Agreement over the Ancestral Domain between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and members of the government peace panel intended to take place last Tuesday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Among those who vehemently condemned the content of this MOA is North Cotabato’s Vice Governor Manny Piñol who petitioned for the TRO to SC.

Hearing over the news, TV and radio, about this controversial MOA the Arroyo government is now facing another bang on her governance. It seems that her cabinet members always forgot to go and undergo on the rules and procedures of our constitution on sensitive issues like this one. Instead of succeeding in the said peace process among the MILF, the GRP peace panel created more chaos and distraught to the Philippines especially to Mindanao in particular.

Public servants must always bear in mind that they serve on the interest of the public and not of themselves. They are also bind to adhere and uphold the rules of law and our constitution in whatever dealings they will have both local and international.
