WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Over 800,000 eligible voters hold Maguindanao’s fate in their hands on Saturday, September 17, as they vote to decide on the province’s proposed split into two.

The one-day plebiscite is set to determine whether law signed by then-president Rodrigo Duterte in 2021 will be successfully ratified.

With the lack of visible opposition campaigners, local officials have been expecting residents to accept the province’s division into two: Maguindanao del Norte and Maguindanao del Sur.
