Winners told: File SOCE on or before June 13

By: Dennis Abrina


TRECE MARTIRES CITY — The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in Cavite is reminding newly-elected officials in the province that they only have until June 13 to file their statements of contributions and expenses (SOCE) or they risk being barred from assuming their posts.

DILG-Cavite Director Eloiza Rozul said that candidates, specially the winners, must submit their SOCEs to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on time as they may not be allowed to assume office until they have complied with the requirement.

If a candidate fails to file his/her SOCE, the law states that the offender shall be subject to perpetual disqualification from holding public office.

Late submission of SOCE entails a penalty of P8,500 for provincial political parties; P8,000 for provincial governors and vice governors; P7,000 for provincial board members, congressmen, local political parties, mayors, and vice mayors; and P6,000 for councilors.(PNA)
