COTABATO CITY, Philippines — A peace advocate is set to take over the military Western Mindanao, which covers provinces beset with security issues that Malacañang is trying to resolve peacefully.

Gen. Arnel Dela Vega, who graduated from the Philippine Military Academy in 1985 and commands the Army's 6th Infantry Division, is popular in central Mindanao for his involvement in multi-sectoral programs complementing the government's peace process with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

He was also imvolved in the surrenders in recent weeks of 15 members of the outlawed Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters. The BIFF operates in the fashion of the Islamic State and is scattered across central Mindanao’s adjoining Maguindanao, Sultan Kudarat and North Cotabato provinces.

Dela Vega will take over WestMinCom’s highest post from Gen. Carlito Galvez, Jr., whom the president designated last month as chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Galvez was also at the helm of 6th ID before he became WestMinCom commander in early 2017.
