6am Saturday hotels and bars also ...tourism hotel can apply for exception to rule...Can someone clarify the liquor ban during the election? I have always deliberately avoided election time in other countries, but this time it's been moved right in the middle of my 2 week trip.
Does the ban start 6am Saturday or 6am Sunday on polling day? Also, is it total or partial? For instance, you can't buy in stores, but you can at hotels and bars.
Also, when does it end? When polling ends on Sunday night or is it all the way into Monday morning?
Granted. I know I'm talking about the DR, so all rules are flexible. I'm just trying to understand the norm.
Shouldn't this go to the other thread discussing COV-19?Out of sight, out of mind. Until there is an announcement that a bunch of someones are sick in this country, CoVid-19 doesn't really exist.
I thought in yesterdays news report of the three Romanians and the 1 Dominican being held for observation in the isolation unit, the CoVid test results would be announced in the afternoon. Wonder what happened to those?
I do not suggest it is right.... but I am suggesting it exists... I call it disgusting and cheating good honest people out of a meaningful job.Yes and the sun will set in the West tomorrow evening.
You are suggesting a patronage system is workable by "meaningful Government Bearucrats? We call that Capitalism in the US.
Political patronage is a nice way of saying embezellment, fraud and serious financial crimes.
****, forgot to stock up. Guess tomorrow/midnight is first option?Until this year the ban would start at 6am the day of the election and went until midnght. They discovered that most Dominicans would stock up the before(what a surprise), so now, the ban starts at 6am the day before the election.
So now, Dominicans will stock up two days before election!
Me too, pleasantly surprised at dinner, beer served. Touristy restaurants excluded from the ban I think.They were selling at a restaurant in Boca Chica today too. Not sure if restaurants count or not.
