Chalong steals Phuket’s booze ban spotlight this weekend

PHUKET: Parts of Chalong will be effected by a booze ban this weekend for local elections.

“Alcohol sales will be banned in District 2 of Chalong from 6pm on February 21 until midnight on Saturday due to local elections,” Phuket Election Commission Director Kittipong Thiengkunakrit told the Phuket Gazette.

The ban will cover five Chao Fa West villages, Chalong Municipality Election Commission Director Waritthaya Boonyarat said.

“The five villages facing a booze ban are Moo 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10, also known as Baan Na Yai, Baan Nakok, Baan Chalong, Baan Wai Mai and Baan Yodsane,” Ms Waritthaya explained.

The candidates for election are Supawatthakan Khunnaluck, Nongkran Tanod and Pramote Sangluck.

“Two of the three candidates running will be elected to replace two members who recently resigned from the council,” Ms Waritthaya said.

“Please note that alcohol sales will only be banned in the five villages I mentioned. Other villages will not be affected,” she added.
