MANILA, Philippines – Days before the May 9 national elections, all of the country’s presidential candidates, except for former secretary Manuel Roxas II who no longer holds a government position, will have to file their 2015 statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).

Vice President Jejomar Binay will be filing his SALN before the Office of the Ombudsman while Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will submit his before the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Sens. Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Grace Poe, on the other hand, will file their 2015 SALNs before the Office of the Senate Secretariat.

According to law, the SALNs of government officials and employees are filed before official repositories depending on rank or position.

Only presidents and vice presidents as well as the heads of constitutional commissions file SALNs directly at the Office of the Ombudsman.

In 2014, Binay declared a net worth of P60.118 million which shows a steady but minimal increase in his wealth since 2011 which was at P57.879 million, P59.804 million in 2012 and P58.762 million in 2013.

As early as two months ago, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) reminded all government officials and employees to file their SALNs for 2015 on or before April 30, 2016.

The reminder was issued pursuant to the requirements of Republic Act 6713 or the code of conduct and ethical standards for public officials and employees.
