LIVE UPDATES: Bangsamoro Organic Law Plebiscite
Manila, Philippines – On Monday, January 21, millions of voters from Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, and Cotabato City will decide if they want their areas to be included in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
If a majority of voters in these areas vote “yes” to the new BARMM, a second voting day will take place on February 6. This time, in Lanao del Norte – except Iligan City – and 7 towns in North Cotabato.
If a majority of voters in all areas agree to their inclusion, the new BARMM will be comprised of the provinces of Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Basilan, Cotabato City, 6 towns in Lanao del Norte, and 67 barangays in North Cotabato.
