Cotabato City & MarawiEdit

I recently found this reference - 15 August 2001: Two southern cities, Marawi and Cotabato, chose in a referendum to join the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao.

The last referendum conducted in ARMM to expand it was held in 2001, of all the provinces and cities proposed for inclusion only Basilan province and Marawi City voted for inclusion. Isabela City which is part of Basilan, declined, hence it remains to be part of Zamboanga peninsula region. I'll be glad to post the results of the referendum I obtained from the Commission on Elections, for the plebiscites held in 1990 for the ARMM's creation and 2001 for its expansion.

Maguindanao voters approve new provinceEdit

Of Maguindanao’s more than 500,000 registered voters, 285,372 favored the creation of Shariff Kabunsuan province. Shariff Kabunsuan became the country’s 80th province and the 6th in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

The new province, carved out of Maguindanao, is composed of the towns of Datu Odin Sinsuat, Kabuntalan, Upi, Sultan Kudarat, Datu Blah Sinsuat, Sultan Mastura, Parang, Buldon, Matanog and Barira.

ARMM is now composed of Maguindanao, Shariff Kabunsuan, Lanao del Sur, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi and the city of Marawi.

Constitutionality of ARMMEdit

Rob Fran (talk) 09:06, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Is the foundation of the ARMM Republic Act No. 6734 otherwise known as the Organic Act unconstitutional?

The constitution 1987 of the Philippines declares separation of church and state. It states that "NO PUBLIC MONEY MAY BE SPENT IN SUPPORT OF ANY RELIGION".

Currently the philippine government continues to spend billions of pesos each year for the salaries of the governors, mayors and all the officers and employees of the ARMM. The philippine government financially supports the Muslims but not any other religion. There is the office of the "Muslim Affairs" paid for by the government. There is no government supported office for the "iglesia ni cristo affairs" or any other religion. There is only the office of the "muslim affairs".

The Philippine government does not spend a centavo on any other religion because it is supposedly unconstitutinal. Yet here is the ARMM and the government spends billions of pesos on it every year.

The constitution of the Philippines claims that there is "Separation of Church and State" yet here is the ARMM and it is 100% supported by the Philippine government. Now this is not separation of church and state. This is embracing the muslim religion. Isn't this unconstitutional?

The ARMM is not an autonomy for any other religions in the philippines. It is only for the Muslims. Isn't this prejudicial and isn't this contradictory to the 1987 constitution declaring separation of church and state?

I've also wondered about this but whether it is constitutional or not (after all, the self-same constitution provides for an autonomous Muslim region, making ARMM constitutional, but possibly also contradictory) Wikipedia is not the place to discuss this issue. This talk page is meant to improve the article on ARMM, not a forum about ARMM itself. --seav (talk) 10:37, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair scopeEdit

Due to sensitivity of this article, it is suggest that qualified Wikipedian-who is either from Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao or is Muslim-should be able to give fair and impartial editing on this scope. Yet, I edit because I myself as Amerikano live in Northern Mindanao for 3 1/2 years, and believe in diversity. Also, any Wikipedians must quit using foreign new source such as BBC or CNN and start using national news outlets as main sources like Manila Bulletin and many more at Newspapers_published_in_the_Philippines.

I don't know about scope but see WP:DUE and WP:RS regarding exclusion of sources. Also, see the lead sentence of WP:V Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 01:22, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Academic debate on partitioningEdit

AreaEdit

There seems to be discrepancy between sources in the land area of ARMM. In general we use the values from the National Statistical Coordination Board. In this case, the ARMM land area would be the sum of the provinces:

TAWI-TAWI 362,655
BASILAN 322,447
SULU 343,699
MAGUINDANAO 972,904
LANAO DEL SUR 1,349,437
TOTAL 3,351,142 ha

As stated at Talk:Lanao del Sur#Area, these values are unreasonably high and must be considered erroneous (or maybe include the sea). On the other hand, there is no agreement in other sources on the land value. The most logical values are those at ARMM Regional Profile (because it gives a breakdown of various land uses), except for Basilan, which is shown at 2,217.8 km2, whereas every other source generally shows a value some 1000 km2 less. The values of the Bangsamoro Development Plan match the ARMM Regional Profile, but gives 132,723 ha for Basilan. Taking this report as the most authoritative, the land area for ARMM is calculated as:

TAWI-TAWI 1,087.40
BASILAN 1093.50 (1,327.23 − 233.73 for Isabela City)
SULU 1,600.40
MAGUINDANAO 4,871.60 (5,047.60 − 176.00 for Cotabato City)
LANAO DEL SUR 3,872.89
TOTAL 12,525.79 km2

12,525.79 square kilometres (4,836.23 sq mi) will be used as the land area unless a more reliable authoritative or primary source can be found. -- P 1 9 9   18:27, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Updated: Isabela's area is 223.73 [1], therefore Basilan's area is 1103.50 and ARMM area is 12,535.79 km2. -- P 1 9 9   16:11, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
