Supreme Court stops extended liquor ban, SC issued a TRO


The Supreme Court Spokesman Theodore Te on Wednesday said that SC has issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the implementation of the extended liquor ban from May 9 to 11.

According to the Spokesman, it was issued following the petition filed by Food and Beverage Incorporated and International Wines and Spirits Association, Inc. questioning Commission on Elections’ Minute Resolution No. 13-0322.

The group said Comelec acted in excess of its jurisdiction when it modified the provisions under Section 261 of the Omnibus Election Code which prohibits, among others the selling, furnishing, offering, buying, serving or taking intoxicating liquor on the day before the election or on election day.

At the same time, the high court gave Comelec up to May 9 at 5 p.m. to answer the petition filed by the Food and Beverage Inc. and International Wines and Spirits Association Inc. -report from PDI news
