By Jennifer P. Gaitano

BUTUAN CITY, Oct. 8 (PIA) -- Caraga stakeholders will participate in the action planning workshop for the 2012-2016 Philippine Youth Development Plan (PYDP) on October 9-11 at the Department of Education (DepEd) Caraga Regional Office, this city.

This is in support to President Benigno Aquino III’s social contract with the Filipino people.

Atty. Eddie Cuaresma, area cluster head of Northeastern Mindanao, said the PYDP was formulated with three objectives to revolutionalize youth development, namely: 1) Improve enabling conditions for youth participation in governance, society and development; 2) Increase contribution and benefit of youth in the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals and other goals; and 3) Improve access to quality basic services and social protection through enabling policies and programs.

“With PYDP as the framework, we will be conducting both national and regional action planning to determine the commitment and contributions of all duty bearers and the mechanism to mainstream the plan,” said Cuaresma.

Cebuano news: Pangulong Aquino mianunsyo sa peace Framework Agreement tali sa Gobyerno ug MILF

Ni Susil D. Ragas

SURIGAO CITY, Oct. 8 (PIA) -- Gianunsyo ni Pangulong Benigno S. Aquino III kagahapon nga hapit na mahuman ang gipanday nga peace framework agreement tali sa gobyernong Pilipinas ug Moro Islamic Liberation Front sa dili nga gitumong aron taposon na ang dugay’ng kasamok nga mikutlo sa mga kinabuhi sa mokabat 100,00 ka mga Filipino.

Sa iyang mensahe atubangan sa mga opisyales sa Kabinete ug mga miyembro sa media didto sa MalacaƱang, matud sa Pangulo nga ang peace Framework Agreement maoy usa ka pamaagi aron makab-ot ang “final and enduring peace in Mindanao” pinaagi sa pag-aghat sa tanang mga stakeholders nga suportahan ang implementasyon sa gikinahanglang “structural reforms.”

“This framework agreement paves the way for a final, enduring peace in Mindanao. It brings all former secessionist groups into the fold; no longer does the Moro Islamic Liberation Front aspire for a separate state,” matud pa sa Pangulo.

“This means that hands that once held rifles will be put to use tilling land, selling produce, manning work stations, and opening doorways of opportunity for other citizens,” dugang pa niya.

Matud pa niya nga ubos sa maong Framework Agreement, usa ka bag-ong “political entity” ang mihulip sa Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao ug kini gitawag nga “Bangsamoro.”

“This agreement creates a new political entity, and it deserves a name that symbolizes and honors the struggles of our forebears in Mindanao, and celebrates the history and character of that part of our nation. That name will be Bangsamoro,” sa iyang pagpasabot.

Matud pa usab sa pangulo nga ang negosyador sa gobyerno ug mga representante sa MILF nga mipahigyon og peace talks didto sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, sa dili madugay ipagawas na ang draft guidelines sa maong Framework Agreement sa mosunod nga mga adlaw.

“In the next few days, the basic principles and outline of the Agreement will be published in various periodicals; the Official Gazette of our government will post the Agreement in full. I urge everyone to participate in free and public discourse before the final signing. Everything will be disclosed; we have no desire to keep secrets. To the best of our ability, we have examined these agreements; we believe we have reached balance and common ground. As a result, we have rectified the errors of the past, and installed mechanisms to make sure they do not recur,” matud sa Pangulo. (RER/FEA/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
