DOCUMENTS THAT the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) government will turn over to the new political entity under the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) are now “90% to 95%” ready. ARMM Executive Secretary Laisa M. Alamia, in a statement, said the documents will be submitted to the coordination team for transition to the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) as well as the Senate and the House of Representatives. “These documents are very important for the BARMM, so when they come in, all of these documents will be there. They will be able to study it… and that would mean that BARMM will not start from zero,” Ms. Alamia said. Technical staff from the ARMM’s different line agencies participated in a documents validation workshop last week to finalize the papers. The plebiscite on the BOL is scheduled on Jan. 21, 2019.
