Prez Duterte postpones EO signing of nationwide Smoking Ban



President Rodrigo Duterte postponed on Tuesday the signing of the Executive Order (EO) banning smoking inside and outside public places nationwide.

The President explained that he needs to review thoroughly the said EO, particularly the indoor smoking provision since many expresses their opposition to it.

The EO prepared by the DOH was patterned from the existing smoking ban in Davao City, where it prohibits smoking inside establishments.

Prior to this, the President is set to sign the EO on Tuesday but was postponed until he is done thoroughly reviewing the controversial provision of nationwide smoking ban inside and outside of establishments.
