Mindanao has been a point of electoral controversy since the May 2004 polls due to the alleged manipulation of electoral results which made its way up to the highest positions of power, questioning the very legitimacy of the Presidency.

Through this forum, a multi-sectoral panel aims to shed light on the following issues, and provide recommendations for electoral reform and regional development:

• The 12-0 vote
• The electoral code and local practices
• Electoral administration, candidacy and proclamation
• Vote buying, fly voting, and incidents of election related violence
• Power relations in the region, particularly the ARMM
