Manila: The head of the government panel that negotiated peace with the secessionist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) is seeking to meet with Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, presumably because of the senator’s opinion that the peace deal she negotiated was unconstitutional.
“The honorable senator is a brilliant professor and an expert in constitutional law. We certainly appreciate her insights and opinion on the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro,” Miriam Coronel-Ferrer said in a statement.
She gave assurances that “through every stage of the negotiations, we remained ever mindful of the President’s instructions that any agreement we must conclude must be within the framework of the 1987 Constitution.”
