Rigoberto Tiglao writes in his latest *Manila Times* article how, under the current agreement, the Philippines essentially loses sovereign control over the Bangsamoro region...
"In the case of the two existing autonomous regions—in Muslim Mindanao and in the Cordilleras—which the Constitution authorized, its Section 16 specifies; 'The President shall exercise general supervision over autonomous regions to ensure that laws are faithfully executed.'
"Nowhere in the entire pact and its annexes is there such a provision.
In fact, nowhere in those documents is even a mention of the Philippine President — the symbol of the Republic, the head of state and government — except in the CAB, as being one of the four people in whose “presence” the pact was signed.
"The Bangsamoro Government is clearly a parliamentary system for the Bangsamoro — which the Constitution does not provide for."
