A MAP of the envisioned territory of Bangsamoro, as indicated in the 2012 Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), looks roughly like the one below.

Shaded on the map of Mindanao are the five provinces of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM); the cities of Marawi, Cotabato, and Isabela; six municipalities in Lanao del Norte; and 39 barangays in North Cotabato. (The six municipalities and 39 barangays voted for inclusion in an earlier plebiscite in 2001.)

The residents of these areas will decide the final scope of Bangsamoro through a plebiscite that will be held after Congress passes the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). The neighboring areas may join through a resolution for inclusion from the local government or through a petition signed by at least 10 percent of “qualified” voters.
