More than 2,000 candidates who participated in the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections have filed their Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) during the deadline yesterday, June 13.

"Todo candidato required man file SOCE whether you win or lose you are required to file your SOCE," Comelec Zamboanga City district 1 election officer Atty. Stephen Roy Cañete said.

The SOCE is important because it will show the expenses of the candidates.

Candidates are only allowed to spend P5.00 per registered voter in their barangay.

Faiure to file SOCE for the first time will mean a P1,000 to P10,000 fine.

Violators who commit the same offense for the second time face perpetual disqualification to hold public office.  (RGAAGo)
