MANILA, Philippines — Umaabot sa 57 Kongresista kabilang ang 53 mula sa Mindanao ang lumagda sa manifesto na tumututol sa panukala ni dating Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na humiwalay na ang Mindanao sa Pilipinas.

Ang manifesto na may titulong Unified Manifesto for National Integrity and Development ay pinirmahan ng 53 Mindanao solons, tatlong kinatawan at Partylist at isang mambabatas mula sa Visayas.

“We signed the manifesto as one voice, one nation, rejecting all calls for the secession of Mindanao. We will not be a party to an unconstitutional proposal to break the territorial integrity of the Philippines. We make our intentions known, as Mindanao lawmakers,” saad ni Lanao del Norte 1st District Rep. Mohamad Khalid Dimaporo, Chairman ng House Committee on Muslim Affairs.

Una rito nanawagan si Duterte at dating House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez (Davao del Norte) para sa independent Mindanao na umani ng kaliwa’t kanang kritisismo mula sa iba’t-ibang sektor.

“We, the elected representatives of Mindanao in the House of Representatives, firmly oppose the calls for the secession of Mindanao from the Republic of the Philippines. Our stance is deeply rooted in our belief in national unity, the power of inclusive development, and the promise of a peaceful, progressive future for all Filipinos, including the indigenous people of Mindanao,” ayon sa manifesto.

Inihayag ng mga mambabatas ang kritikal na papel ng Mindanao sa pambansang ekonomiya at binigyang pagkilala ang mga hakbangin ni Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong “Marcos Jr. na iprayoridad ang pagsulong ng kaunlaran sa rehiyon.
