COTABATO CITY — The Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) on Wednesday, Feb. 24, approved another one of its priority legislations – the Bangsamoro Civil Service Code (BCSC).
The code will govern the conduct of civil servants, prescribe qualifications for non-elective positions, adopt an independent and credible merit and fitness system, protect civil service eligibles in various government positions, including government-owned and controlled corporations with original charters in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region, and provide rules on disciplinary authority over the Bangsamoro Government’s officials and employees.
By nominal voting, 67 BTA members voted both physically and via zoom for the approval of Cabinet Bill No. 59. None of the members voted against nor abstained.
Member of Parliament (MP) Engr. Aida Silongan filed the BCSC in the plenary on July 27 last year. She was the chair of the cabinet committee tasked to draft the bill. Read more. (Photo from Bangsamoro Transition Authority Parliament FB Page/ Text Bangsamoro Information Office)
