Biosketch of MP Marjanie S. Mimbantas Macasalong 

Sultan Dr. Marjanie Mimbantas Macasalong is well-known as one of the young members of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority Parliament since 2019. For more than 15 years of being a public servant, he invested his time in mainstreaming the inclusion of the Bangsamoro youth in all aspects of society.

A Doctor of Philosophy, this Meranao visionary leader’s talent lies in bringing out the potential in other young leaders. Because of his works for the youth, he was appointed in 2019 as Executive Director of the Office on Bangsamoro Youth Affairs, and at present, he serves as the Chairperson of the Bangsamoro Youth Commission (BYC), the youth arm of the Bangsamoro government that is responsible for preparation, implementation, monitoring and evaluating plans and programs for the welfare and development of the youth sector.

MP Marjanie has always placed a priority on youth advocacy. His youth-centered projects and platforms through BYC have helped translate the hope of the Bangsamoro youth into real outcomes. His sincere leadership also forged meaningful bonds among the members of different youth groups – professionals, out-of-school youths, students, and combatants.

In his continuing efforts to serve the Bangsamoro communities, he is also involved in almost all sectors of development – religious, environmental, health, social welfare, security, traditional leadership, and educational activities in different provinces of Bangsamoro.

Prior to his appointment as BTA Member, he worked as a lecturer at the International Islamic University of Malaysia, where he finished his Bachelor of Human Science in Political Science as well as his Master of Arts in Islamic Thought and Civilization. MP Marjanie is driven and inspired to impart his knowledge to the Bangsamoro region after spending nearly ten years as a student and professor experiencing an ideal Muslim government in Malaysia.

Continuing the legacy of his parents to have a progressive, inclusive, responsive, and unified Bangsamoro, the Late MILF Vice Chairman Aleem Abdul-Aziz Mimbantas and Hadja Azizah Salic Mimbantas, Dr. Marjanie continuously organizes meetings and outreach programs in different communities of BARMM from the plains of Marawi City to the remote areas of Turtle Islands in Tawi-Tawi. Moreover, he has international engagements in different countries such as Turkey, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore. Recently, he became an alumnus of the Nelson Mandela Leadership Programme.

Currently, Dr. Marjanie is the Chairperson of the Committee on Trade, Investment, and Tourism, Vice-chairperson of the Blue-Ribbon Committee, Committee on Health, and Committee on Basic, Higher, and Technical Education. He is also a member of the Committees on Rules; Accounts; Local Government; Special Committee on Marawi; Finance, Budget, and Management; Human Settlements and Development; and Women, Youth, Children, and Persons With Disabilities.

As a public servant, Sultan Dr. Marjanie Mimbantas Macasalong envisions a peaceful progressive Bangsamoro land.
