Public Works orders removal of political propaganda
The Ministry of Public Works has announced it will remove political propaganda from city streets and highways. This measure will make room for political propaganda for President Danilo Medina, the new lead runner in politics following the amendment in the 2010 Constitution that was approved on Friday, 12 June 2015. A PLD pact has now dismantled several campaigns, including those of PRD president Miguel Vargas, who had a profusion of “Dimelo” billboards, former President Leonel Fernandez and Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia.
The Ministry of Public Works claims that the billboards obstruct visibility and could distract drivers and safety on streets and highways. He said that politicians should remove their billboards from unsuitable places. The Ministry now says that the propaganda violates Article 227 of Ground Transit Law 241.
Minister of Public Works Gonzalo Castillo was one of the most active campaigners for pushing re-election through Congress.
The electoral law establishes a three-month campaign window for electoral propaganda.
