Business World - - THE NATION - — Char­maine A. Tadalan

THE BANGSAMORO Ba­sic Law (BBL) draft un­der House Bill (HB) 6475, jointly ap­proved by three House com­mit­tees on Mon­day and to be taken up in ple­nary, is an en­hanced ver­sion of the pre­vi­ous drafts, ac­cord­ing to the Bangsamoro Tran­si­tion Com­mis­sion (BTC). In a post on its Web site, the BTC said HB 6475, which is the same ver­sion BTC sub­mit­ted as its fi­nal draft, “has just en­hanced pro­vi­sions that need to be strength­ened, elab­o­rated and/or fur­ther clar­i­fied, tak­ing into greater con­sid­er­a­tion the prin­ci­ples of widest in­clu­siv­ity among Bangsamoro sec­tors and other stake­hold­ers.” Among its im­prove­ments is the in­crease of the Bangsamoro Par­lia­ment mem­bers from 60 to at least 80. If passed into law, the new Bangsamoro will re­place the Au­tonomous Re­gion in Mus­lim Min­danao.
