Town hall meeting sa Binidayan, Lanao del Sur

Naging makabuluhan ang isinagawang town hall meeting info drive sa Binidayan, Lanao del Sur.
Dumalo sa nasabing aktibidad ang iba’t ibang sector gaya ng mga Ustadz, manggagawa, kabataan, environmentalists, mga kinatawan ng mga organisasyon sa nasabing lugar, at marami pang iba pa.


Mahalagang tinalakay ang kanilang mga personal na karanasan sa BARMM Government sa nakalipas na tatlong taon, ang kanilang mga inaasahan sa extended termino ng pamahalaang Bangsamoro at ang mga nais nilang maisabatas sa tulong ng mga kasalukuyang miyembro ng Bangsamoro Transition Authority.
Nabigyang-diin ang paghahanap ng solusyon sa patuloy na pagtaas ng unemployment rate at hiniling na may sapat na mga tuntunin sa oportunidad sa mga trabaho o transparency ng hiring process sa mga ahensya ng BARMM.

Naging oportunidad naman ito para maiparating ang kanilang ninanais na magkaroon ng sapat na suporta sa mga madrasah at sa mga pasilidad nito. Gayunpaman, nais nilang makamtan ang mga naipangako ng mga kinauungkulan sa BARMM.

Nagpapasalamat ang mga mamayan ng Binidayan sa inisiyatiba ng Opisina ni MP Atty. Rasol Y. Mitmug Jr. upang alamin ang mga suliranin at iba pang isyu ng mga nasa laylayan.

Ngapadala naman ng representante si Minister Ulama ng Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs – BARMM sa katauhan ni Felino Samar, Executive Assistant V, na siya namang nagpaliwanag ng mandato at mga programa ng ministro. Makabuluhan ang pagbabahagi ni Samar dahil ipinaalam nito sa mga dumalo ang mga karapatan nila sa lengguwaheng Teduray.
Isang importanteng usapin naman kaugnay sa mga oportunidad at polisiya para sa mga kababaihan ang tinalakay ni Sahara Ali na kinatawan naman ng Bangsamoro Women Commission – BARMM.
Naging oportunidad naman ito para maiparating ng mga katutubo ang kanilang karanasan bilang mamamayan ng Bangsamoro at maisangguni ang kanilang mga nais na tulong o serbisyo na makuha mula sa iba’t ibang ahensya ng gobyerno.
 
Ayon sa mga participants, mas nadagdagan ang kanilang kaalaman tungkol sa barmm government at nagpapasalamat sila na may ganitong programang nakarating sa kanila. Hangad ng opisina ni Mitmug na maging tulay upang mas maging maginhawa ang bawat IP communities sa rehiyon sa tulong na rin ng ating pamahalaan.
Nagpapasalamat din kami kay Maam Ai Leen ng Women Organization of the Rajah Mamalu Descendants sa pagtulong na maging matagumpay ang aming aktibidad.

Communicators’ Network on Women, Peace and Security formed

From 10-12 August 2022 in Davao City, the Office of MP Ras Mitmug Jr. joined other information and media staff from the Bangsamoro ministries and offices and civil society organizations, including those coming from other parts of Mindanao, in the very first communication training focused on the promotion of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security or the WPS agenda.
 
Nor-ain Ibad Lambitan, Information Officer of this Office, emphasized that when we communicate women for their empowerment, we are also resonating to the campaign for peace. UN Women organized the training through the support of Global Affairs Canada and Korean Ministry of Gender Equality and Family through the WPS-ASEAN project.
 
UN Women WPS team lead in the Philippines Nery Nuyda Ronatay encouraged everyone to shape the narratives on peacebuilding and conflict resolution to promote women’s participation.
Ryce Chanchai, regional team lead on WPS and Governance, welcomed everyone and affirmed UN Women’s support for the groundbreaking initiative.
 
Editor-in-Chief Carolyn Arguillas of MindaNews opened the door to publish news and articles coming from within the Bangsamoro region.Chiara Zambrano inspired everyone when she shared her personal journey as a woman journalist covering armed conflict including the Marawi Siege in 2017.
 
Social Media B/Vlogger and Photographer-Videographer Louie Pacardo of Nomadik Media shared effective practices and tips to expand social media reach and improve photography skills.
 
The training culminated with the formation of a communicators network for WPS. “UN Women is overwhelmed with the affirmation from the participants that this initiative really matters to them, that this will help them become more effective in reaching their audiences, and that forming a network among themselves makes peacebuilding cohesive and comprehensively more inclusive. This is how we would like to build capacities.” Carol DawonlayvdaBello, Communication for Development (C4D) consultant said.
 

Forum and launch of the Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region: Framework and Annotations and the Signing of the Agreement of Cooperation

Forum and launch of The Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region: Framework and Annotations and the Signing of the Agreement of Cooperation between the Institute for Autonomy & Governance and the Mindanao State University System at the Luxe Hotel, Cagayan de Oro City.

This is the 3rd launching of the book. Authors Atty. Ishak Mastura, Atty. Johaira Wahab, and MP Ras Mitmug gave short messages. Mastura & Mitmug also fielded questions from the audience.

The Agreement of Cooperation is a general agreement between IAG and MSU System  to cooperate on three themes: (1) Rule of Law, (2) Governance, (3) and Justice Systems. IAG Exec Director Benny Bacani and MSUS President Atty. Basari Mapupuno assured they would provide assistance in the crucial stages of the Bangsamoro Goverment.

During his message, Atty. Mitmug noted that the failure with the ARMM was that the people did not understand what it was, nor the laws or policies it enacted. He hoped the book would contribute to the greater understanding of the BOL, and explained that the annotations in the book do not present a singular view. Rather, the text provided several stances in its annotations.

Mitmug conducts FGD on proposed local governance code with legal experts

MARAWI CITY – The District Office of Deputy Minority Floor Leader Atty. Rasol Y. Mitmug, Jr. conducted a focus group discussion (fgd) on the draft Bangsamoro Local Governance Code (Bill No. 58) at VIP Room, Sarabi Cuisine & Café, MSU Marawi City last June 23, 2022 with legal experts.

The FGD centered on the legal issues on the provisions of the proposed bill as they discussed the possibilities of resolving and/or raising some conceivable constitutional, statutory, jurisprudence and ordinance challenges in the bill.

MP Mitmug, in his welcome address, said the LGUs have a huge role in the crafting of the LGC considering the responsibilities that would affect the local government.” The legal experts reviewed the bill based on existing laws in the Philippines and exchanged thoughts during the session.

“In the proposed bill, it imposed professional tax of P 1, 300.00 and under the law, the professional tax is just P 300.00. Once you pay a professional tax in any city or provinces, it is applicable, or you can exercise it anywhere in the Philippines. Is it not a disadvantage on the part of the Bangsamoro? Instead of paying 300.00, they would pay professional tax of P 1, 300.00?” said by Atty. Norsary S. Mamad. He also wished that the experts behind the proposed BTA bill were present, so that they can possibly rebut the issues being raised and cite their stance thereupon.

The legal representatives in said FGD include Atty. Norsary S. Mamad (Special Assistant for Legal Matters-MSU System and Overall Assistant Dean at MSU College of Law), Atty. Farhanisah D. Comacasar, Sh.L., REB, CSE, LPT (Professor- MSU College of Law and MSU College of Business Administration and Accountancy), Atty. Hapsha Khabab-Sansarona (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Agrarian Reform, Lanao del Sur), Atty. Johari U. Diacat, CE (Private practitioner), Atty. Khalid D. Moner (Attorney III, MSU Legal Services Division), Nassif Nagamora, JD (Assistant Executive Director, MSU Legal Aid and Human Rights Center), Mohammad Mojib Datumanong Marangit, Sh. L. (Professor, Al-Khwarizmi International School, Marawi City).
