1987: The peace talks for Muslim autonomy continue in Manila. Surigao del Norte Governor Wencelito Andanar is the chief government representative. Three rebel groups are invited, namely: the MNLF, MNLF-reformists, and the MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front). The MNLF is represented by Mujalab Hashim, the MNLF-reformists send Napic Bides and Macabanton Abbas as their representatives. The MILF, however, does not participate, as it demands that for its representation in the peace talks, it must be invited through the Organization of Islamic Conference or through the Muslim League. It is agreed at this meeting that the government and MNLF groups will submit their respective proposals for full autonomy for Mindanao.
