THE Electoral Board in Marbella has accepted a proposal for election propaganda for the upcoming Andalucian elections to only be placed on electronic notice-boards in the city.
The measure, put forward by the council, aims to avoid the city becoming plastered with traditional posters in the run-up to the elections.
Propaganda will only be allowed to be displayed on 13 electronic notice-boards and 125 street-lights, the board’s verdict published in the Official Bulletin of Malaga Province states.
Areas parties may use for campaigning were also limited to the halls of Rio Verde, Santa Teresa and Al Andalus schools, the Parque de la Constitucion, Parque de la Alameda, Avenida del Mar and Parque Arroyo La Represa.
Marbella council has the right to 25 per cent of the electronic-boards’ screen time, which it intends to share between the parties running for the elections using the same proportions previously given for traditional posters.
The system will also be proposed for the run-up to the May 24 local elections.
