One of the primary writers of Resolution No. 754, Bangsamoro MP Diamila Disimban-Ramos, announced the measure’s acceptance at the BTA’s fourth regular session on June 16 in a Facebook post.

For the benefit of the local Muslim population, the local Bangsamoro population, and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, this is “napakalaking bagay po nito” (BARMM). This meeting will take place tomorrow at the Kongreso, Senado, and meeting to discuss security for the Muslim community’s kapakanan and Karapatan. This is a huge blessing for Muslims, for our Bangsamoro, and for the entire Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. Magbibigay seguridad sa pagkakaisa ng iba’t-ibang tribo at mananampalataya, na ipaglalaban ang kapayapaan at hustisya at bibigyang prayoridad ang We now have a champion in the Senate, a champion in the House of Representatives, and a champion who will protect the rights and welfare of Muslims. He will defend the harmony of the several tribes’ and religions’ beliefs. He will prioritize continuing the good work we started in the BARMM government and strive for justice and peace, she continued.

As he will use “Rebolusyonaryong Pagbabago para sa Responsableng Pilipino” and “Aksyon Hindi Drama” as his rallying cries, Padilla may be a first-time senator but he is not a novice in public service, according to Ramos.

She claimed that Padilla, the sole Muslim serving in the upper house of the upcoming 19th Congress and the first since 1995, is expected to assure Muslim representation, improve the welfare and protection of Muslims’ rights, and maintain the unity of the Filipino people.

“Poke nagahalaga ng ating pagkakaisa para sa pagpapatuloy ng legasiya ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte para sa pagkamit ng hustisya at pagkamit ng kapayapaan para sa seguridad ng Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. In order to carry on President Rodrigo Duterte’s legacy of achieving justice and peace for the security of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, we must remain united. To that end, we must support Brother Abdulazis Robin Padilla, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, in his bid to become the nation’s top senator in the 2022 national and local elections. Alhamdulillah, he is currently ranked first among senators. President Duterte appointed our Muslim brother Brother Abdulazis “Robin” Padilla to compete for senator in the most recent national and local elections in 2022 out of love for us, and Alhamdulillah he was fortunate and won, she stated.

Disimban-Ramos added that Padilla’s victory ensures the representation of Muslims and offers a significant opportunity to push for legislative and developmental measures that will not only protect the peace process and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao but also advance our efforts to create a society that is more inclusive, equitable, progressive, and socially just.

MPs Maisara Dandamun-Latiph, Marjanie Macasalong, Hatimil Hassan, Amilbahar Mawalil, Eddie Alih, Modayao Sacar, and Adzfar Usman, in addition to Ramos, had already introduced the legislation.

The actor-turned-politician received more than 26 million votes and triumphed resoundingly in every BARMM province.

Prior to his election, Senator-elect Robin Padilla championed the rights and welfare of common Filipinos, including as farmers, fishermen, micro- and small business owners, overseas Filipino workers, women, young people, and vulnerable groups like the poor and marginalized. Additionally, Mr. Speaker, he has consistently worked behind the scenes to improve the lives of both Muslims and non-Muslims in the nation through his philanthropic deeds, prompt response to disaster relief, and support to calamity-stricken families and neighborhoods.
