Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) is filed by Lacson.

MANILA, Philippines — One of the ten presidential candidates who competed in the May 9 election has yet to file his Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) with the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

According to information supplied by the Comelec-Campaign Finance Office (CFO), only losing presidential candidate Senator Panfilo Lacson had met the requirements of Republic Act No. 7166, also known as the Synchronized Elections Act, as of 5:00 p.m. on June 3.

So far, no vice-presidential candidates have filed their SOCEs.

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV joined fellow senatorial bet Guillermo Eleazar, who was the first to file his SOCE among senate candidates, in complying with the law’s requirement.

In the case of party-list organizations, eight have submitted SOCEs.

Ang Kabuhayan, Ako Bisaya, Kabalikat ng Mamamayan, Abante, Anakpawis, Ang Bumbero, Bayan Muna, and A Teacher are the names of the characters.

These organizations were among the first to file, including Abono, Senior Citizen, and Bisaya Gyud.

In terms of political parties, only the Unido Party has filed its SOCE, according to the Comelec-CFO.

The law mandates all candidates and treasurers of political parties to file a full, true, and itemized statement of all contributions and expenditures related to the election within 30 days of election day.

The deadline for filing SOCEs is June 8, 2022, according to Comelec Resolution No. 10695.

Local candidates may file their SOCEs at the poll body office in their city/municipality, while national candidates must file them at the Comelec main office in Intramuros, Manila.
