BARMM executives receive Ramadan gratuity money, but workers are pushed

CITY OF COTABATO – A politician in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) has introduced a measure that would allow the regional administration to provide economic support to its officials and employees during Ramadhan.

Omar Yasser Sema, a member of Parliament, has introduced Parliament Bill 171, also known as the Ramadan Economic Assistance and Relief Act of 2022, which provides one-month basic salary assistance to all officials and employees of the region, whether permanent, coterminous, job order or contractual, who have served for at least four months prior to Ramadan.

Officials and workers who work for the BARMM for three months are entitled to 50% of one month’s basic compensation; 40% of one month’s basic salary for two months of employment; 30% of one month’s basic salary for a month of employment; and 20% for less than a month of labor, according to Sema, a lawyer.

In a statement released Thursday, he stated, “This is in acknowledgment of the officials and personnel’ dedication in serving the Bangsamoro.”

Sema praised the BARMM workers for their dedication in the face of the pandemic’s threats.

In his proposal, he also stated that the funds needed to implement the bill will come from any available regional fund and that the funds will be included in the yearly Bangsamoro Appropriations Act in coming years.

He stated that the award should be made accessible one week before Ramadan but no later than the 15th day of that month.

The National Commission on Muslim Filipinos announced on Facebook that Ramadan, the month-long fasting season, will be held from April 2 to May 2 this year.
