Ebook launch: BOL and BAC

Ebook SMC

The Office of MP Rasol Y. Mitmug, Jr. has launched two e-books in celebration of Bangsamoro Foundation Day.

The first is the Bangsamoro Organic Law (Republic Act 11054), a landmark legislation that abolished the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and created the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region.

The second e-book is Bangsamoro Autonomy Act No. 13, or the Bangsamoro Administrative Code. The BAC is one of the priority codes of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority, and defines the structural, functional, and procedural principles and rules of the Bangsamoro region’s governance.

MP Mitmug hopes these will be valuable resources for students, teachers, lawyers, and everyday citizens who wish to read and understand the new Bangsamoro government.

Recognizing Al-Basher Buto, Bangsamoro Chess Prodigy

COTABATO CITY – MP Rasol Mitmug, Jr. filed Proposed Resolution 356, a Resolution commending Al-Basher Buto, the young chess prodigy from Lanao del Sur.

Ten-year-old Buto, who has participated in tournaments since the age of 5, is now representing the Philippines at the ongoing 2020 Fide Online World Cadets and Youth Rapid Championships (November 28-December 3).

His feats include scoring gold in the 13th Asian Schools Chess Championship in China, the 8th Asean Age Group Chess Championship in Malaysia, and the National Age Group Chess Championship in Cebu, all in 2017. Buto’s parents, Bong and Jamellah, are hopeful he will be a grandmaster by the time he is 16 years old.

Wesley So, Filipino-American grandmaster, recently made headlines for winning the Skilling Open title. So lamented the lack of assistance given to Philippine athletes, and hoped that the government would pay more attention to aspiring and talented youth.

The filed resolution, aside from honoring Buto and his achievements, also calls on the Bangsamoro government to provide support for his continued training and development. If approved by the Bangsamoro Transition Authority, the measure would help continue Buto’s journey to becoming a grandmaster.
