The Commission on Elections en banc yesterday issued a resolution allowing it to continue accepting Statement of Contributions and Expenditures of candidates in the last elections beyond June 30, 2016 but with the appropriate fines.
In the seven-page resolution, the Comelec en banc officially changed the deadline for the SoCE filing from June 8, 2016 to June 30, 2016.
“The Commission hereby further resolves, to impose administrative fines upon candidates and parties who fail to file their SoCEs on or before June 30, 2016 based on the Scale of Administrative Fines provided in Resolution No. 9939,” the Comelec en banc said. (Samuel P. Medenilla)
