MANILA — Defeated Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Mar Roxas asked the Commission on Elections on Thursday for a 14-day extension to file his statement of contributions and expenditures (SOCE).

Akbayan Rep. Barry Gutierrez, Roxas’ campaign spokesperson, said that as of Thursday Roxas and the LP campaign team were still preparing receipts and other documents of his expenses during the campaign for the May 9 elections.


President Aquino’s candidate for President failed to submit his SOCE on the last day of filing on Wednesday.

“The primary reason is the voluminous number of receipts that have to be scanned and attached to the document in compliance with the rules and in the interest of complete transparency,” Gutierrez said in a statement.


Comelec Resolution No. 9991 imposes a fine of P10,000 to P30,000 for failure to submit the SOCE for the first time depending on the position.

Of the four presidential candidates who have presented their SOCE to the Comelec, Sen. Grace Poe was the biggest spender, using P510.84 million out of the P511.95 million in cash donations she had received. SFM/rga
