The transition plan “aims to identify the new structural framework of the BARMM, based on the provisions of Republic Act No. 11054, also known as the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL), taking into consideration the existing structure, budget, and other relevant features of the ARMM.”
The transition plan, Ebrahim said, ”is a product of the hard work of the people who strongly supports the endeavor of achieving sustainable peace and development in the Bangsamoro.”
”This document includes how we will transition from ARMM to this newly-established form of government, the Bangsamoro,” he added.
It also includes organization chart for the various ministries, offices, and agencies from the BARMM, as well as the timeline for the gradual phasing out of the offoces under the ARMM.
The proposed transition plan was drafted by the coordinating team for transition (CT4T) composed of members from the government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front for the smooth transition from ARMM to BARMM.
In 2014, the Peace Negotiating Panels of the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) created the CT4T to ensure that necessary and appropriate steps are undertaken in preparation for the transition.
The transition period will end upon the dissolution of the BTA as provided in the Bangsamoro Organic Law.
After the approval of the transition plan, they also present the BTA Bill No. 4 ’an act appropriating and authorizing the disbursements of P10.1 billion for public works and other purposes.’
The next regular session will be on June 24 and 25.
