MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) will impose a 48-hour liquor ban from May 12 until May 13 to ensure “peaceful and orderly” elections.

PNP spokesperson Colonel Bernard Banac said on Thursday that a liquor ban will be imposed from 12:01 a.m. May 12 (Sunday) until 12 midnight of May 13 (Monday).


“Sa May 12, magpapatupad ang PNP ng liquor ban bilang bahagi ng mga batas na pinaiiral sa eleksyon. Ito ay kabuuan na 48 hours ng liquor ban,” Banac said in a press conference.

“Sa period na ito ay mahigpit na ipinagbabawal ang pagbebenta ng mga inumin na nakakalasing at maging yung pag-inom,” he added.

“Bahagi ng security preparations na ipapatupad para magkaroon ng mapayapa at maayos na halalan sa Lunes,” he said. /je
