DEADLINE FOR FILING | Candidates expected to flock to Comelec on last day of filing of SOCE
June 13, 2019 , 05:07 PM

JUNE 13, 2019 — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is anticipating an influx of candidates at its Central Office on the last day for filing of Statements of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE).

Party-list and senatorial candidates began filing their SOCE as early as June 3, according to the poll body.

Seventeen senators have filed their SOCE ahead of the deadline, including Nancy Binay, Pia Cayetano, and Cynthia Villar, and 47 party-list groups.

The Comelec warns candidates who fail to file the SOCE on or before the deadline will receive a fine of P6,000 while candidates who failed to file the first time will be penalized P10,000.

Comelec campaign finance office director Atty. Efraim Bag-id warns that second- and third-time offenders will be barred from running.

“‘Yung mga tumakbo sa eleksyon, kailangan magsumite ng SOCE within 30 days after the elections. Kung ikaw ay tumakbo sa eleksyon at di ka nag-file, may administrative fine, kung ikaw ay first timer. Kung ito naman ay second time na di sila nakapag-sumite, maliban sa admin fine, hindi na sila makakapag hawak ng government office — elective or appointive position,” said Bag-id.

Meanwhile, winning candidates will be given six months from the day of the proclamation to submit their SOCE and will be asked to pay a fine of P10,000.

“Yung mga kandidatong nanalo at di makapag sumite ng SOCE, they cannot assume office until they submitted their SOCE,” said Bag-id.

As of 12 noon, the Comelec has received the SOCE of nine party-list groups, two senatorial candidates, and three political parties.
