THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT ON THE BANGSAMORO: WHY AND HOW WE GOT HERE
On October 7, President Aquino announced that the two parties have agreed to sign a preliminary peace agreement which calls for the creation of an autonomous political entity named Bangsamoro , superseding the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao ARMM. He criticized the ARMM as a "failed experiment" that did not address issues such as electoral fraud, political patronage, poverty, war and warlordism.
