Group says DC gov’t may reverse aerial spray ban decision after elections

M01ban (DAVAO CITY) — It is possible that the city government’s decision to ban aerial spraying is temporary and a reversal is likely after the elections, alternative law group Saligan said.

Lawyer Raissa Jajurie, Mindanao coordinator of the Sentro ng Alternatibong Lingap Panligal (Saligan) said that theoretically the new city council can decide to allow once more banana plantations to use aerial spraying even if Mayor Rodrigo Duterte already signed the ordinance banning it.

She cited an effort to push for Green votes as crucial in ensuring that the
elective officials will not flip-flop on the issue after the elections.
