Sittie Pasandalan started this petition to BARMM Chief Minister MURAD EBRAHIM and

On February 22, 2019, the appointed officials for the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) took oath before President Rodirgo R. Duterte with Murad Ebrahim as the first Chief Minister. On the same gathering, the Bangsamoro Plebiscite Canvass Results were also confirmed. In the Bangsamoro Organic Law Plebiscite, the six towns of Lanao del Norte which filed for a petition to be included in BARMM lost with a Yes vote of 72,888 versus a No vote of 154,553 during the Lanao del Norte plebiscite last February 6, 2019. The six towns (Balo-i, Munai, Nunungan, Pantar, Tagoloan, and Tangcal) of Lanao del Norte is not part of BARMM.

However, Section 9 of Article VI of the Bangsamoro Organic Law mandates "the representation of the Bangsamoro Communities Outside of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (BCOBAR) in the Council of Leaders empowered to advise the Chief Minister on matters of governance in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM)." Section 9 of Article VI ensures due representation of Moro outside BARMM. The six towns of Lanao del Norte which is the area of MILF Commander Abdullah G. Macapaar, famously known as Commander Bravo, is part of the Bangsamoro communities outside BARMM. Presently, Abdullah G. Macapaar or Commander Bravo is a Member of the Parliament of the BTA-BARMM. 

Considering that Commander Bravo comes from the area which is not part of BARMM and the only Member of the Parliament who hails from such area, it is strongly recommended that Abdullah G. Macapaar be appointed as the Representative of BCOBAR. As an individual who has grown in an area that has not been dominated by Moro people, he understands and empathizes with experiences of Moro people living outside Moro communities. Commander Bravo who resides in a non-Moro dominated area is a friend of Christians and non-Moro. As a Member of the Parliament, Commander Bravo focuses on Muslims outside BARMM and Christians inside BARMM

This petition is to ensure the appointment of Abdullah "Commander Bravo" G. Macapaar as the Representative of BCOBAR.
