All is fair in love and electioneering.
Local government elections are less than a week away and parties are stepping it up. From insults to rallies, nothing seems to be off-limits as what is expected to be one of the most tightly contested elections nears.
A big part of campaigning is posters. Nobody really knows how much money is being spent on them, but it must be quite a lot. However, all things are fair in love and elections and parties plastering their posters over their opposition has become commonplace.
