Duterte appoints Nur Misuari as PH’s special economic envoy in OIC


MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founder Nur Misuari as Special Economic Envoy on Islamic Affairs to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

In a statement from the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process, Duterte made the announcement during the meeting between government and MNLF on “remaining commitments in the Tripartite Review Process (TRP) of the 1996 Final Peace Agreement” on Friday.

The OIC, along with the government and MNLF, led the TRP which was concluded in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia last January 2016.

Duterte said the MNLF founder will help enable “lasting relationships” with leaders in Islamic countries.

Brother Nur has occupied several positions in the past. Considered it as an honor for me to delegate you as special envoy of the government so that you can foster further lasting relationships with the leaders of the Islamic countries,” Duterte said during the meeting.

Misuari is also set to attend the annual meeting of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States in Burkina Faso in Western Africa on Jan. 21 to Jan. 23, 2020.

The OIC will help in the peace agreements between the government and rebels. The OIC is involved in Bangsamoro Coordinating Forum to “harmonize all the Moro fronts in the Philippines and integrate all the development plans to foster long lasting and enduring peace in Mindanao.”

    solid si Chairman Nur Misuari. Purong Tausug kaya masasandalan at maaasahan.

  • oo nga solid na solid yan.

    biruin mo, yung mga na-displaced sa zamboanga siege, magpahanggang ngayon nakatira pa rin sa temporary housing.

    wala kasing magawa sa buhay kundi manahamak at manira sa mga taong nananahimik.

    Duterte assigns Misuari as special envoy to int'l Islamic organization

    MANILA- President Rodrigo Duterte has designated Moro National Liberation Front founding chair Nur Misuari as the Philippines' special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

    Duterte assigned Misuari to the post on Monday according to a list of new presidential appointees Malacañang released Tuesday.

    The OIC is the world's second-largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations with a membership of 57 states across 4 continents. 

    The organization describes itself as the "collective voice of the Muslim World."

    The President first announced Misuari's designation as special envoy last month, saying he cannot think of any other person that "could command the respect and trust of the OIC" other than the Moro leader.

    "Consider it as an honor for me to delegate you as special envoy of the government so that you can foster further lasting relationships with the leaders of the Islamic countries," Duterte told Misuari last month.

    Misuari was former governor of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, the region replaced by the Bangsamoro. 

    In 2013, he was charged for alleged involvement in the Zamboanga siege, an attack the MNLF launched allegedly over its exclusion from peace talks between the government and another Moro group.

    The siege left some 200 dead, including police officers, soldiers, rebels, and civilians. Misuari was released on bail in 2016 and has since met with Duterte several times.
