Most candidates in Davao City yet to file statements on election expenses

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/10 June) – The deadline for the submission of the
candidates’ signed Statement of Election Contributions and Expenses is on June
13, but as of Friday noon, only 11 out of 69 candidates in Davao City in the
May 14 polls have submitted reports, according to the Commission on Elections
in the city.

The Comelec said the list of those who had submitted statements as of Friday
did not include Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and daughter-vice mayor elect.

According to a staffer of Davao City Comelec District Officer Lacsasa Casar,
most candidates would usually file their reports on the deadline.

She said that in the May 2004 elections, most of the candidates were able to
file their reports.

She cited a losing and lesser known candidate who did not file but was charged
for violation of the Republic Act 7166 or the Synchronized National and Local
Election Act.

The law requires the submission of statements from all candidates. Read full story here.
