Talisay City vendors opposing their transfer to a new public market in barangay Lagtang won the first round.

Their transfer was put on hold after a court issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) based on a petition by the vendors association.

Talisay City Administrator Ritchel Bacaltos said they also postponed the transfer because work remains to be done in the new facility, including the raffling of stalls.

Talisay City officials met with the Talisay City Vendors Association. Vendors association officer Paul Labalan said the new market is smaller compared to the old market.

The vendors group who earlier went to Naga City met President Benigno Aquino III who attended the inauguration of a coal-fired power plant there.
