24-hour alcohol ban for election

Thais go to the polls on Sunday for the first time since 2011, which also means there will be a 24-hour alcohol ban this weekend.

 

Alcohol sales and distribution will be forbidden from 6pm on Saturday to 6pm on Sunday.

 

Officials say weddings, parties and other celebrations can still be organised for these dates but there must be no alcohol served or consumed.

Why ban tourists or ex-pats from drinking?

 

Ok, people could stock up and consume in private, but surely a ban is not nessesary, is it?

 

I would not be surprised if social dating sites are red hot during the 24 hour ban, with individuals such as bar girls etc... trying to make up for lose of potential earnings.

 

With today's technology, voting is possible on-line.

So the ban includes drinking?

Why is this the case? It's effectively stating that nobody is allowed to drink for 24 hours. 

A party isn't selling alcohol it's giving it away for free, same with some weddings.

I've got a licensed bar in my house and I've got a big party organised tomorrow. The gates at the front will be locked but could I still be prosecuted??

I have been told Mixx is open.

 

If not, and Thermae is closed, bet there will be some street bargains

This is a new thing, never seen them say that alcohol cannot be consumed and it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible to enforce!!!!!
