Bongbong Marcos Camp Release Campaign Expenses During 2022 Election
BONGBONG MARCOS – The Partido Federal Ng Pilipinas (PFP) just released the campaign expenses of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., during the 2022 election.
Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., son of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr., is elected president of the Philippines. BBM had an advantage over Vice President Leni Robredo and other candidates due to the prepared groundwork of his team.
BBM’s strategic partnership with his running mate Sara Duterte allowed him to strengthen his support base. Bongbong ran under Partido Federal Ng Pilipinas (PFP) and his campaign focuses on calling for unity among the Pinoys.
Bongbong Marcos is taking his oath of office at the National Museum on June 30 while vice president-elect Sara Duterte will be inaugurated in Davao City on June 19.
The PFP just released the campaign expenses of BBM during the election. According to PFP General Counsel Atty. George Briones, their campaign spending for BBM’s presidential bid hit P272 million. The party is set to submit its Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) to COMELEC today.
“The PFP spent P272 million by way of expenses in the last 2022 presidential campaign, which is well below the maximum expenditure of P337 million allowed by law for a national political party,” said Briones.
“The PFP SOCE was signed and prepared by PFP National Treasurer Antonio Ernesto ‘Anton’ Lagdameo who was recently nominated by President-Elect Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. as his SAP or Special Assistant to the President.”
All candidates in the 2022 national and local elections only have until Wednesday, June 8 to submit their SOCE. The spending limit for political parties is P5 per voter which will reach P337M. For presidential and vice-presidential candidates, P10 per voter is allowed, amounting to P675 million. Marcos Jr. is also expected to submit his own SOCE.
