The Bangsamoro Organic Law to establish an autonomous Muslim government on Mindanao Island in the southern Philippines has been virtually finalized in the first round of the referendum.
The civil war, which lasted 50 years between the Philippine government and Islamic rebels came to an end.
According to Saturday’s (26th) local and foreign media new, the election commission of the Philippines announced that 83 percent of the valid votes approved the Bangsamoro (Islamic Country) Organic Law” in The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) in the referendum held on Monday, the 21st.
The Bangsamoro Organic Law allows the establishment of an autonomous government with legislative, administrative and fiscal rights in ARMM and 28 surrounding villages inhabited by Muslim minorities. The central government governs Defense, diplomacy, and monetary policy.
A referendum outside the ARMM will be held on February 6th. In a recent poll, 79 percent of Muslims are in favor of The Bangsamoro Organic Law so the law should pass without difficulty.
In the Philippines, where more than 80% of the people are Catholics, Muslims account for less than 10%.

For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)
As Esther went out before the king to deliver her people from the fate of genocide, we, Christians who came into the gospel first, want to come before You to pray for the Muslim Autonomy in the southern island of the Philippines.
When the world church goes before God and prays for the Muslims in the Philipines who do not know the truth, we want to see them come alive in you.
From now, please let the Philippine Muslims be ruled by the law of life, not the law of death! Let the great masses of the Philippines rise and proclaim the law of life to all nations!
