Interior Minister Naguib G. Sinarimbo acknowledged this much-awaited development. He is also spokesman of BARMM and head of the Ministry of Interior and Local Government (MILG).
“We received this morning the good news that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte already signed the law Extending the Period of Transition and Resetting the Regional Elections in the Bangsamoro to 2025 while we were busy in the simultaneous groundbreaking of additional 18 Barangay Halls in the cluster of barangays in Midsayap and Pigkawayan that joined the BARMM in 2019,” said Sinarimbo on Friday (October 29, 2021).
“We thank the President for his continuing support to the Bangsamoro as he promised in our meeting in Malacañang early this week. We congratulate the Bangsamoro people who have consistently supported the leadership of the BARMM. We raise our hands in gratitude to Allah for His continuing guidance.” (EDD K. U.)
