The unregulated and excessive use of posters and fliers depicting the various candidates running in the upcoming local government and European Parliament elections clearly provokes public sentiment, and understandably so.
It is also aesthetically annoying while doing absolutely nothing to improve the country’s already burdened state of affairs as concerns waste management.
At the same time municipal, regional and European Parliament candidates – whose posters have been put on display in towns and cities across the country – are violating the law and will no doubt follow the example of their predecessors, who failed to pay the fines that were imposed on them.
The incumbent mayor of Athens, Giorgos Kaminis, is right to argue that the law must be respected by absolutely everyone and must be fully implemented.
This is the kind of behavior better suited to an underdeveloped country must be stamped out once and for all.
