Comelec: 'Majority' of 2022 national election candidates file SOCE

MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections said the majority of the 2022 national candidates filed their statement of contributions and expenditures (SOCE) on time this year, allowing winning candidates who complied to hold their positions.

In a press release dated June 9, the poll body said the SOCE deadline will not be extended, except for those who won in the polls.

"Winning candidates are given a grace period of six months from proclamation to file their SOCE. Until such time that they have complied, they are barred from assuming office," Comelec's Education and Information Department Director James Jimenez said.

National candidates may only spend up until P675,290,080 or P10 per voter. Meanwhile, candidates with a political party may spend up to P197,495,418 or P3 per voter and independent candidates, political parties, and party-list groups P74,320,316 or P5 per voter.
