Bangsamoro Codes Consultation Portal

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!

Welcome to the Bangsamoro Codes Consultation Portal!
This portal is designed to give platform to the people for the review of draft key legislations of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region. These priority codes, as provided for in RA 11054, otherwise known as the Bangsamoro Organic Law, shall be passed by the Parliament during the transition period. This website was created to (1) serve as an online resource for experts and interest groups, (2) facilitate public access to legislative documents, and (3) provide an alternative consultative space between the Bangsamoro Transition Authority and its constituents in the new normal. As you explore this site, please feel free to use the consultation forms for your notes, comments, and suggestions. We hope for a consultative approach to encourage feedback and meaningful participation in pursuance of our mandate in the legislation process, in shaa Allah.
