The Bangsamoro region covers the provinces of Basilan, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi. Its component cities are Cotabato, Lamitan, and Marawi. It also covers under its jurisdiction 63 barangays or villages in North Cotabato, which voted in a plebiscite in January and February 2019 to join the BARMM.

A new political entity (NPE), the BARMM was created out of the blood, sweat and tears of the Bangsamoro people, put into paper in the Philippine government-MILF peace treaty, the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement (CAB), which then was flesh out into implementation by the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL).
