It was formally inaugurated in June 2012, by the Government and the MILF peace panels as an early confidence-building measure ahead of reaching a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (2014). BLMI is run by the MILF and offers training to its military and political cadres to adjust to the challenges of transitioning from an armed revolutionary movement to the formal political arena.
