HOW THE continuing quest for peace in the island vis-à-vis the legislative agenda of congressional wannabes would be the focal discussion point of the media forum among peace advocates and the candidates running for a seat in the House of Representatives, here, on Tuesday.
In a letter sent to Gold Star Daily over the weekend, Philippine Information Agency 10 Regional Director Thelma Oliver said they have partnered with the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process and the Commission on Elections in hosting a media forum dubbed: Usapang Kapayapaan.
The congressional candidates in the region would be joined by national government peace panel chair Prof. Mirriam Coronel-Ferrer and her counterpart with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front Mohagher Iqbal.
“The media forum would focus on the standpoint of the congressional candidates with regards to the decades-long quest for a lasting peace in Mindanao,” Oliver’s letter reads in part.
The congressional bets, Oliver added, would also present how they would translate their stand on the peace process into their respective legislative agenda, should they win on May 9.
Usapang Kapayapaan will be held at the Rosario Pavilion, Limketkai Center, here, and would start at 10am.
