Leading the 80-member BTA is Ahod “Al Haj Murad” Ebrahim as Interim Chief Minister. Ebrahim, who chairs the central committee of the erstwhile revolutionary group Moro Islamic Liberation Front, held the post since President Duterte first organized the BTA in 2019.

The BTA was supposed to have ended its institutional life last June 30, but Congress extended it to 2025 by postponing the regional elections scheduled last May, to give time for transition measures to be completed.
