Interim Chief Minister Ebrahim receives proposed transition plan

COTABATO CITY – Interim Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim, aka Al Haj Murad, of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) announced last Monday that he would receive the proposed transition plan crafted by the Coordination Team for Transition (C4T).

Ebrahim made the announcement at Monday’s flag ceremony held inside the BARMM Compound in Cotabato City.

“Today I will be receiving formally the proposed transition plan crafted by the CT4T (Coordination Team for Transition) as agreed by both peace panels of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the Government of the Philippines,” Ebrahim said.

“I shall be submitting the same with the appropriate revisions from the Cabinet to the Bangsamoro Transition Authority,” he said further.

Article XVI, Section 6 of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) otherwise known as Republic Act 11054, provides, thus:

“Within the first sixty (60) days of the transition period, the interim Chief Minister shall submit to the Bangsamoro Transition Authority a transition plan that shall contain the proposed organizational plan, as well as, the schedule for implementation therefor. The Bangsamoro Transition Authority shall, by a

majority vote of all its members, approve or otherwise act on the proposed transition plan within ten (10) days upon submission by the interim Chief Minister. If the transition plan is not acted upon within sixty (60) days, it shall be deemed approved. The transition plan shall be implemented within fifteen (15) days from its approval.”

The Chief Minister also announced in the same flag ceremony that he has already issued a directive to all the ministries and offices of the Bangsamoro Government to provide Ramadhan incentives for all its employees.
