President Duterte to Propose Liquor Ban in the Philippines

Written By Real Kevin Jay on Thursday, May 12, 2016 | 8:13 AM

Presidet-elect Rodrigo Duterte proposes a nationwide liquor ban as part of his promise and effort to supress criminality.



Spokesman Peter Lavina told reporters that sale of alcoholic beverages will be prohibited from 1 a.m. in the whole country.

The proposed measure is based on a city ordinance that has been implemented in Davao after Duterte saw the correlation between drunkenness and crime as well as road accidents.

Lavina clarified that once approved, the nationwide liquor ban will be imposed in public places. He noted that people will not be denied of their freedoms as they can drink to their hearts' desire at home.
