The 2013 Election's biggest spender

Former Cagayan Rep. Juan Ponce “Jack” Enrile has spent the most amount of money in the Senatorial elections.
Enrile, who lost in the senatorial race, spent P2.89 per registered voter in the last elections.

Comelec chair Sixto Brillantes Jr. said a candidate can only spend as much as P156 million or P3 per voter to run a campaign. Otherwise it will constitute over-spending, which is an election offense.
He declared all the campaign expenditures he incurred was paid for by the P150,797,910.18 contributions he got from his family, friends, or supporters.

Enrile’s SOCE also showed that he even saved P396,838 from the contributions, which he was not able to use in the three-month campaign period.

The Comelec has only released 15 out of the 30 SOCE submitted to Comelec to the media.
