MANILA, March 30 — The peace process between the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front continues to gain headway as the Transition Commission, the body tasked to draft the Bangsamoro Basic Law, is set to hold its first en banc session on April 3.

“We welcome the holding of the first en banc meeting of the Transition Commission on April 3,” GPH peace panel chair Miriam Coronel-Ferrer said in a press statement issued on Black Saturday.

“The Government Panel will work closely with the Transition Commission in continuing to reach out to the public and coming up with a draft law that will embody the just aspirations of the peace negotiations,” she added.

Composed of 15 members, seven of which were nominated by the GPH while eight were recommended by the MILF, the TransCom will begin its work on drafting the Basic Law following its first meeting.(PNA)
