SIMUAY, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao (MindaNews/ 22 January) — Cheers greeted Al Haj Murad Ebrahim, chair of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) as he entered Room 15 of the Simuay Central Elementary School to vote for the Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

“This is the first time to exercise my right for suffrage and this signifies that now from a revolutionary, we are transforming into the democratic process so we see that this is very historic because we have been struggling for almost 50 years and it is only now that we see some light at the end of the tunnel,” Murad told a press conference at the covered court of the school, after voting.

“We are hoping that with this development, finally we can achieve the aspiration of our people for peace … and good life in this part of the country and in the entire country,” he said.
