Liquor Ban in Effect For Municipal Elections

December 1, 2006

Those with party plans for the weekend may want to stock up on alcohol today – a dry law will be in effect this weekend for Sunday’s municipal elections. Selling alcohol will be illegal from midnight today and until midnight Monday, according to a statement from the Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE).

During these three days, commercial establishments dedicated solely to the sale of alcohol, such as bars, must remain closed, while restaurants, supermarkets and other establishments that sell booze along with other offerings may remain open but must close off their alcohol section, according to articles 80 and 173 of Costa Rica’s Electoral Code, the statement said.

Those who violate the dry law could face three months to two years in prison.
