Bulgaria: Ruling Party Uses Children's Holiday Posters in Election Campaign

Bulgaria's ruling party GERB (Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria) has been using children's holiday posters in the city of Plovdiv in their campaign for the upcoming Oct. 23 presidential election. This poster, posted in the Facebook group of the left-wing Solidarna Bulgaria (Solidarity Bulgaria), shows how the ruling party has been campaigning in violation of the Bulgarian laws, which prohibit the use of propaganda in schools, universities and other public places for children.
