Sun Star Bacolod - - Topstories -

OF 35 lo­cal candidates in Ba­colod City, only re­elected Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia and re-elected Vice Mayor El Cid Fa­mil­iaran had al­ready filed their state­ments of elec­tion con­tri­bu­tions and ex­pen­di­tures (Soce) be­fore the Com­mis­sion on Elec­tions (Com­elec)-ba­colod last week.

Com­elec-ba­colod records showed that Leonar­dia and Fa­mil­iaran sub­mit­ted their Soce be­fore its dead­line on June 12.

Ba­colod City has a to­tal of 27 candidates for coun­cilor; three candidates for mayor; three candidates for vice mayor; and two candidates for con­gress­man.

Leonar­dia and Fa­mil­iaran both ran un­der the Grupo Pro­greso.

Act­ing Ba­colod elec­tion regis­trar Ann Janette Lam­ban ear­lier said all the candidates, both win­ners and losers, should sub­mit the Soce at Com­elec of­fice within 30 days af­ter the midterm elec­tions.

Lam­ban said that it’s part of the re­quire­ments of all the candidates to sub­mit their Soce af­ter the elec­tions.

Only those candidates who with­drew their can­di­dacy are not re­quired to file their Soce.

Soce is a com­pre­hen­sive re­port about the cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions and ex­pen­di­tures of po­lit­i­cal candidates.

Lam­ban said the Com­elec Cam­paign Fi­nance Com­mit­tee will val­i­date and eval­u­ate the sub­mit­ted SOCE./MAP
