THE BANGSAMORO Transition Authority (BTA) has created eight ad hoc committees that will prepare the documents for the administration of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) regional government. “These ad hoc committees will draft the priority legislations for this year that will serve as blueprints in setting up the regional bureaucracy,” Amir S. Mawallil, member of the BARMM parliament and vice-chair of the ad hoc committee on internal revenue code, said after the BTA’s 4th session last week in Cotabato City. The committees corresponding to priority legislations are: administrative code, internal revenue code, indigenous people’s affairs, civil service code, education, local government, creation of offices, and electoral code. Under Article XVI, Section 4 of Republic Act 11054 or the Bangsamoro Organic Law, the BTA shall accomplish the enactment of these priority legislations. Pending the enactment of these priority legislations, the ARMM Local Government Code as contained in Muslim Mindanao Act No. 25 will be in effect. — Tajallih S. Basman
