Marbella is set to be plastered with electoral posters for the December 20 Spanish general elections. The city had banned campaign posters for the last two (regional and local) campaigns; however, now the electoral board has given the go-ahead for political advertising on the streets.
The list, approved at the October plenary session, has already been published in the Official Provincial Bulletin.
The former council had eliminated this type of advertising and replaced it with electronic panels which they said gave the city a cleaner image and saved money.
Posters will now be placed in Parque de la Alameda, at the entrance to La Ermita industrial estate, on Plaza de la Iglesia in San Pedro, in La Campana, at the entrance to Puerto Banus, in Nueva Andalucia and in Las Chapas.
The electronic panels will also be left in place with 15 spread across Marbella and San Pedro. More than 1,000 posters with logos and candidates’ faces will now be appearing on the streets and squares of the area.
