Weeks ahead of the May 2019 elections, a forum which tackled the concepts of election and autonomy was held at the UB Audio-Visual Room last April 13.

The proposed Cordilleran autonomy was also highlighted in the forum, where a brief history of the Cordillera region was presented, including the preparations being done to come up with an autonomous form of Cordilleran government.
