BA­COLOD City Elec­tion regis­trar Mavil Ma­jaru­con-sia al­ready re­turned to her of­fice in Ba­colod City ef­fec­tive yes­ter­day.

Ma­jaru­con-sia, who was ear­lier reshuf­fled by the Com­mis­sion on Elec­tions (Com­elec) to Iloilo City, said yes­ter­day that all the elec­tion of­fi­cers who were reshuf­fled in May elec­tions now re­turned to their re­spec­tive of­fices ef­fec­tive June 17.

She said Ann Janette Lam­ban, who re­placed here in Ba­colod, also re­turned to her of­fice in Lapu-lapu City.

In Fe­bru­ary, Com­elec reshuf­fled Ma­jaru­con-sia and Lam­ban along with the elec­tion of­fi­cer of Iloilo City.

Ma­jaru­con-sia said that Lam­ban al­ready turned over all the doc­u­ments to her per­son­nel.

She said they are now pre­par­ing for the voter’s reg­is­tra­tion in July for the barangay and Sang­gu­ni­ang Ka­bataan (SK) elec­tions in May 2020.

“We want to pre­pare early for the barangay elec­tions,” she added.

Mean­while, Ma­jaru­con-sia said there will be no extension for the filling of State­ments of Elec­tion Con­tri­bu­tions and Ex­pen­di­tures (Soce) for the four los­ing can­di­dates in Ba­colod City who failed to meet the deadline on June 13.

“The cam­paign fi­nance of­fice of Com­elec is go­ing to send them a de­mand let­ter in re­la­tion to their ad­min­is­tra­tive fine,” she said.

Of 35 can­di­dates in Ba­colod, only 31 sub­mit­ted its Soce for the May elec­tions be­fore its deadline on June 13.

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