MILF organizing political party for 2016 and beyond
(The Philippine Star) - November 4, 2014 - 12:00am

DAVAO CITY, Philippines –The United Bangsamoro Justice Party is being organized as the political party of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

“It would not be for 2016 only. The MILF and the Bangsamoro would be democratic and participatory, that is why it would be beyond 2016,” MILF vice-chair Ghazali Jaafar told The STAR.

Jaafar said the political party would be open not only to MILF members.

“We welcome everybody… but they also have to go through a certain screening. As to how the screening would go, right now we are still discussing it,” he said.

He said the structure of the Bangsamoro political party is being drawn up by the MILF central committee.

Jaafar said the MILF looks forward to the Philippine Development Forum to be held here Thursday, where donor nations and organizations would pledge their funding support to the planned Bangsamoro government.
