The 2013 mid-term election may be over but the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is still waiting on national candidates to disclose how much they spent for their campaign.
Out of the 33 candidates who joined the senatorial race, only 21 bets were able to file their Statement of Election Contributions and Expenditure (SECE) for Thursday deadline.
Those who complied all won in the senatorial race like Senators-elect Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino III, Nancy Binay, Grace Poe, Cynthia Villar, and Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV.
Others who also submitted SECEs include:
Christian Seneres
Ramon Montano
Ramon Magsaysay Jr.
Juan Ponce Enrile Jr.
Samson Alcantara
JC delos Reyes
Baldomero Falcone
Richard Gordon
Edward Hagedorn
Jamby Madrigal
Greco Belgica
Margarita Cojuangco
Ernesto Maceda
Mitos Magsaysay
Ricardo Penson.
Several national political parties also filed SECE include:
United Nationalist Alliance (UNA)
Nacionalista Party (NP)
Lakas – Christian Muslim Democrats Party (Lakas-CMD)
Partido Demokratiko Pilipino (PDP)
Social Justice Society (SJS)
Liberal Party (LP).
Senators-elect Juan Edgarda “Sonny” Angara, Alan Peter Cayetano, Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito, Francis “Chiz” Escudero, Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan, and Loren Legarda failed to comply.
Their failure came even after Comelec extended for three hours due to the pouring down of heavy thunderstorms due to intensified activity of the Southwest monsoon.
Several campuses and universities suspended classes due to floods that came after the heavy downpour.

Amount details will be revealed Friday, according to Comelec.
