COTABATO CITY, PHILIPPINES – The Policy Research and Legal Service (PRLS) of the Bangsamoro Parliament recently presented a research study to the members of the Blue Ribbon Committee. The study focused on the establishment of a committee for petitions.
The proposed committee for petitions would provide a platform for citizens to raise their concerns and grievances, ensuring that their voices are heard by the Parliament.
The committee would review and evaluate all petitions submitted and make recommendations for appropriate actions to be taken.
On the other hand, the Blue Ribbon Committee has jurisdiction over matters such as the investigation of malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance in office acommitted by government officials and employees, including those of the Bangsamoro Government, local government units, and other instrumentalities.
The PRLS’s presentation highlights the significance of the proposed petition committee in promoting transparency and accountability in the Bangsamoro Parliament.
