Inanunsyo ni Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque ngayong araw, Mayo 27, na pinirmahan na ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang batas na naghahati sa Maguindanao sa dalawang probinsya.
Sa ilalim ng bagong batas, ang Maguindanao ay mahahati sa Maguindanao del Norte at Maguindanao del Sur.
Nakatakdang ilabas ng Palasyo ang kopya ng bagong batas.
Noong Marso ay inaprubahan ng senado ang panukalang batas na nagtatatag sa mga probinsya ng Maguindanao del Norte at Maguindanao del Sur na naglalayong pabilisin ang pag-unlad ng mga ito at siguruhin na ang mga serbisyo ng pamahalaan ay magiging mas abot-kamay para sa mga nasasakupan nito.
