At least 13 civil society organizations took part in the consultations on what major electoral reforms should be pursued and included in the crafting of the Bangsamoro Electoral Code (BEC) – a deliverable which the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) has yet to pass. The consultations highlighted important considerations that need to be reflected not only in the BEC but also in future party and election laws in the Bangsamoro.

"The composition of the present BTA is the stumbling block for the BARMM to achieve genuine inclusive peace, development and progress," the TJG says in this position paper. 

IAG has partnered with Freedom House and the newly-established Bangsamoro Human Rights Commission for institutional and personnel capacity-building, national and regional multi-stakeholder dialogue on the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 and human rights promotion and advocacy in the region.

Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC) Secretary General Atty. Mary Ann Arnado presents the salient points and findings of the rapid midterm review of the Bangsamoro transition period conducted by MPC. One of the recommendations of the review is the extension of the period of transition for another three years. 

At least 10 existing and emerging political parties and movements are involved in the training series on party-building and organizing in the Bangsamoro project implemented by IAG and Westminster Foundation for Democracy, with support from the Government of United Kingdom.
