ARMM, Peacetalks & Malacañang’s Grant to Rebels

Malacañang Palace, as revealed to the public recently, has granted the Moro-Islamic Liberation Front [MILF] some P5 million peso dole-out. It is creating a stir in public.

People can debate and argue on the correctness of the move by government,  by Malacañang Palace executives actually, but fact is money has already been handed to and been received by the MILF. And never has it stirred much since a dozen and more of government soldiers had died in encounters with the MILF just some days ago. Rebels claimed that government soldiers went a-stray, whatever they meant by that. Government troopers were pursuing a kidnap for ransom group [KFR] operating in rebel controlled or operated territory when they were ambushed.

About the grant, Malacañang has justified the move by saying that it was an agreement of the Arroyo administration in one of its secret meetings with the MILF and the new administration merely implemented it.

Talking about shrouded meetings between Malacañang and the rebels now reminds of the aborted MOA-AD by the past administration of President Arroyo. It appears the present Aquino administration has also been doing their own hushed meetings with the rebels like the ones that transpired in Japan, and in Kuala Lumpur, recently.  They were late-publicized and  known very little-about by the public – if people can call them transparent.

And since talking about the controversial MOA-AD, we are reminded also of another thing very critical and controversial – the postponement of election for the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao [ARMM].

The Aquino administration had moved to postpone the ARMM election only to stumble over the Supreme Court on the issue.  It would have allowed Malacañang to appoint ARMM officials, a move that political oppositions have cried foul. Malacañang in fact caused a postponement of ARMM election in the sense that the election was not held on the day as stipulated by law that created ARMM, in the course of all that.

ARMM is an institution beholden to the Republic of the Philippines and Malacañang Palace is there to oversee that. But, an ARMM that is beholden to Malacañang Palace, or whoever seats in there, is something different. The kingpin and some stalwarts of the Ampatuan clan that controlled the ARMM and former President Gloria M Arroyo are right now facing allegations of election fraud viewed on that alleged unholy relation, in fact.

As the Arroyo administration had learned in the MOA-AD, Republic of the Philippines is not a hacienda. And even in a hacienda, the administrators can only do things that the hacienda owners allow or stated. And the owners, Sire/Ma’am, is people of the Philippines and not the Christians, not the Muslims, and absolutely not Malacañang Palace.
