BORACAY ISLAND, Aklan- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) warned both resort owners and bars in this resort island and the whole of the province that they will be strict in implementing the liquor ban on October 24 if they have not applied for exemption.
Records from the poll body indicated that only the Shangrila Resort and Boracay Regency have applied so far.
Failure of the owner to apply will result in penalization if the establishment will continue to sell liquor despite the ban.
The Comelec also reported that three gun ban violators were nabbed since they implemented the gun ban in time for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections on October 25.
Some 5,232 positions have to be filled up by the candidates both in the barangay and SK posts.
Both the Comelec and the Aklan Provincial Police Office are ensuring continued peace and order in the province.
