Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — As of March 27, residents in Puerto Aventuras will not be able to purchase alcohol. Mexico’s dry law (ley seca) will come into effect midnight for Puerto Aventuras residents while a mayor is elected.
Juan Novelo, the General Secretary of Ayuntamiento de Solidaridad says that the sale of alcohol will be prohibited Sunday during the Puerto Aventuras election for its first-ever mayor.
“We are already working with the Ministry of Finance and Planning to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sunday,” he said.
Approximately 5,000 ballots will be distributed between three polling stations that will be installed in public schools in Puerto Aventuras.
On March 27, Puerto Aventuras residents will vote in an official mayor. Both Gilberto Gómez Martínez and Feliciano Teh Cen are running for the position that will see de facto mayor, Tomás Flores Benítez, relieved of the duty.
The winner of the Puerto Aventuras mayor seat will be announced on April 1.
