Bongbong Marcos’ Camp on when he will file Election Campaign Expenses: “No Information…”

When will President-Elect Bongbong Marcos File his Election Campaign Expenses?

BONGBONG MARCOS – The camp of Marcos Jr. said that there is still “no information” as to when he will file his election expenses.

Part of the processes that candidates for elections go through after the poll is the filing of their Statement of Contribution and Expenditures or more commonly called SOCE.

During the previous elections, several candidates made their SOCEs public. The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is the body setting a deadline for the filing of the election campaign expenses of the candidates.

With regards to the filing of the SOCEs of the candidates of Elections 2022, Comelec set the deadline this Wednesday, June 8. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, under the law, a candidate’s failure to file his or her SOCE may result to perpetual disqualification from holding any public position.

Recently, the camp of president-elect Bongbong Marcos was asked when he will file his election campaign expenses or SOCE. The incoming press secretary, Trixie Cruz-Angeles, said that there is still “no information” from Marcos Jr.

According to the report, Cruz-Angeles stressed that they still have two (2) days before the deadline for the filing of SOCE saying “it’s early”. Previously, the political party of Marcos Jr., Partido Federal ng Pilipinas, said they spent P272 million for his presidential campaign. However, they refused to release a copy of the election campaign expenses to the members of the press.

Marcos Jr. is set to assume office on June 30. He had a landslide victory with over 31 million votes. However, there are still pending cases against his presidential bid filed before the Supreme Court.

All petitions seeking his disqualification from the presidential race were junked by Comelec. After the election, petitions against his bid were filed before the Supreme Court. The high court has yet to release a verdict.
