Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said there were no talks yet to lift the prohibition of consumption of liquor in public places.
She made the statement amid inquiry by business establishments serving alcoholic drinks if the ban to consume liquor in public areas would be removed.
“There is no discussion yet to repeal or amend the Executive Order (EO). It stays sa pagkakaron ang consumption sa liquor is
within the private properties only,” Duterte-Carpio said.
Last October, Duterte-Carpio issued an EO providing for the modified guidelines on liquor ban.
The EO states that alcoholic drinks may only be served and consumed inside private properties but prohibited in bars, restaurants, sari-sari stores, palengke (wet market), video, and other business establishments. #
