Seminar set on proper SOCE filing
(The Philippine Star) - April 28, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections has perpetually disqualified a total of 105 candidates to hold public office “due to repeated failure to file their Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE)” in the previous elections. This is based on Comelec’s strict implementation of Resolution 9476 and Republic Act 7122, mandating all candidates and political parties to submit their SOCE within 30 days after election. To help those running for an office avoid disqualification, the Center for Global Best Practice will host a special training titled, “Election Best Practices on How to Prepare Your SOCE” on May 30, 2019 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Mandaluyong City.

This program will feature Judge Ferdinand Rafanan. His remarkable performance in the judiciary includes resolving over 2,600 cases in less than four years in office when he was regional trial court judge assigned to Mandaue Branch 55, a special court handling election cases. He has recently been transferred as RTC judge of Pasig City and San Juan City.  Prior to his appointment to the judiciary, he was head of the Comelec Law Department until July 2011. He graduated from UP Law in 1983 as an Owen White-Peter Doyle scholar.
