So since the ARMM Elections 2011 did not push through, the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Screening Committee instead called for nominations to various ARMM OIC posts. Mindanaoan.com even posted the call for nominations days ago. Now, we just got the latest update.
Apparently, the call for nominations for ARMM positions has lured in a total of 341 applicants!
According to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), a total of 341 nominations were forwarded to their office. Here’s the breakdown:
Nominations for ARMM OIC Governor – 51
Nominations for ARMM OIC Vice Governor – 17
Nominations for ARMM OIC Legislative Assembly Members – 272
There were applicants from Basilan, Sulu 1st District, Sulu 2nd District, Tawi-Tawi, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao and even from the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)!
Included in the list of nominees were acting ARMM Governor Ansaruddin Adiong, former DILG Deputy Minister Saidamen Pangarungan, ex-ARMM Governor Zacarias Candao and Maguindanao Governor Esmael “Toto” Mangudadatu. All of them expressed intent to become the next ARMM OIC Governor.
