The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) lauds the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the military for their role as peacekeepers during the successful conduct of the first plebiscite for the ratification of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) conducted on Monday.

“Despite a few isolated incidents, the first BOL plebiscite on Monday was generally peaceful. Kudos to the police and the military for safeguarding our Filipino voters as they exercised their right to suffrage and for guarding the poll centers to ensure the peaceful conduct of the exercise,” says DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año.


Days before the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) plebiscite, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) assures the public that it will not allow "peace spoilers" to sabotage the historic voting on January 21, 2019.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año says that the government is ready just in case the communist terrorists, violent extremists, or anti-BOL groups will try to "wreak havoc and disrupt an all-important endeavor for peace in Mindanao".


The DILG and the PNP welcome the case filed, a petition for prohibition, by the ACT before the Court of Appeals.

In sum, the petitioners have cited alleged violations of their members’ right to association, right to assembly and to petition the government for redress of grievances, freedom of expression and most especially their members’ right to privacy.
