Geopolitical Expert Shares Possibility of Pres. Duterte Winning the Nobel Peace Prize

A veteran international political analyst and geopolitical expert working as the director of online think tan Eurasiafuture revealed a possibility of Pres. Rody Duterte earning the much-coveted Nobel Peace Prize after the passage of the Bangsamoro Organic Law.



According to Adam Garrie, after signing the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) in just the second year of his term as President of the Republic, Pres. Duterte drew praises from both the United Nations and the European Union, the Philippine President should now be considered for the world's most prestigious award which will be given this coming October 2018.

Adam Garrie was quoted as saying "By working to end a centuries-long protracted and manifold conflict through a combination of legal intensity, cultural compassion and human outreach towards the Moros, Duterte has taken a major step towards doing something that the Spanish and American imperialists, Japanese occupiers and previous Filipino leaders could not do: bring peace to the Bangsamoro region and the Moro people,” he added.



Before being eyed by some international political experts as a possible nominee for the popular Nobel Peace Prize, Pres. Duterte was earlier nominated for the 2017 Confucius Peace prize which is China’s equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize. The award was eventually won by Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen.

The Confucius awards aim to promote "world peace from an Eastern perspective," it was awarded by a private company.

Adam Garrie on his official statement also noted that “in many respects, the long standing Moro conflict” in Mindanao has raged for far longer than the internal conflict in Myanmar, the Kashmir conflict and the Israel-Palestine conflict which are often pointed to as struggles which all began in the late 1940s and continue to rage to this day.

The BOL should have been signed during Mr. Duterte’s State of The Nation Address (SoNA) last 23 July if not for a leadership struggle that led to Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo taking over the post as Speaker. Mr. Duterte signed the law last Friday based on copies of the BOL released by MalacaƱang.
