ISANG babaeng lokal na opisyal sa Palawan ang nagsusulong na ipagbawal ang pagsusuot ng mga bikini, thong at g-string sa mga pampublikong lugar sa lalawigan.

Ayon kay provincial board member Cherry Pie Acosta, hindi lamang nakaka-offend sa mga konserbatibong residente ang pagsusuot ng mga turista ng mga hapit na damit at bikini kundi nagdudulot pa raw ito ng mga hindi kanais-nais na insidente. 

Tinukoy ni Acosta ang sitwasyon sa Port Barton sa bayan ng San Vicente kung saan nakikihalubilo na sa mga estudyante at mga nagsisimba ang mga turistang naka-bikini lamang.

Bukod pa dito ay may mga napapapulat na rin umanong mga insidente ng mga turistang nakikipagtalik sa mismong mga beach sa isla.

"Lalo kung nasa mainland sila. May mga school tayo, may simbahan. Umiikot sila na kitang-kita 'yung puwet, 'yung buttocks," dagdag pa ng opisyal.

Suhestiyon ni Acosta, pwede namang magtapis ang mga turista kung pupunta sila sa mga pampublikong lugar. 

"Okay lang ang one piece. Pero kung mag t-back sila, kailangang may tapis sila. Kung gusto nilang lumublob kaagad sa dagat, magtapis muna kaagad sila," aniya.
