BANGSAMORO ORGANIC LAW – Here is the partial and official tally in Cotabato City for the Bangsamoro Organic Law Plebiscite.
Last July 2018, the Bangsamoro Organic Law was signed into law by the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. It is also known as the Republic Act No. 11054.
The aim of this law was to abolish the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and people were given a chance to decide whether they wanted or not to join the Bangsamoro entity.
Locations in Mindanao like Isabela City, Lanao Del Sur, Cotabato City, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, and Maguindanao will be participating in the voting.
Following a previous article, the Bangsamoro Organic Law’s first voting day occurred yesterday January 21, 2019.
2 million voters in Mindanao are anticipated to vote on their respective polling precincts.
In a report, the Commission on Election (COMELEC )and the Philippine National Police (PNP) stated that the voting yesterday was successful and peaceful.
It was reported that some teachers didn’t show up because they received a “threatening messages” on that day.
Fortunately, the COMELEC were able to replace those teachers who didn’t show up and continued the Bangsamoro Organic Law voting. The absence of those teachers could affect 8000 voters not to vote.
Based on the Twitter post of CNN, they shared some photo updates regarding the Bangsamoro Plebiscites.
As of 12:30 pm today, 159 polling precincts are done canvassing out of the 374 polling precincts in Mindanao.
COMELEC’s partial and unofficial tally in Cotabato City:
YES – 22,598
