Iloilo City (6 May) -- It will be unlawful for anybody to sell, furnish, offer, buy, serve or take liquor on the eve and day of the election on May 10.

The election "no-no" is included in the Calendar of Activities and Periods of Prohibited Acts that was prescribed by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) per Resolution No. 8646 in connection with the conduct of the country's first automated elections on May 10, 2010.

The other prohibited acts during the period are:

Those who are caught violating the law including both vendors and buyers will be penalized.

However, the COMELEC regional office here explained that the liquor ban does not cover hotels, restaurants and other establishments engaged in foods and beverages that cater to foreign tourists and are accredited by the Department of Tourism (DOT).
