CALPE’S Partido Popular had to remove campaign placards from local lampposts following a complaint from the PSOE.
The PSOE socialists argued that the placards contravened a formal agreement between the principal political parties, signed before a notary, that they would reduce election campaign spending.
All the parties had pledged that they would not use the service of advertising agencies or attach posters to column or streetlights, agreeing to limit publicity to putting up election posters at midnight on the first day of the campaign.
Two hours after the complaint from the socialists, who had announced that they were prepared to report the infringement to the Electoral Committee, all of the placards with photos of the PP’s presidential candidate Pablo Casado and the party’s campaign slogans had been removed.
