Photo of a candidate for the mayor of Irshava as a lawyer is posted on a bus
According to the OPORA, an advertising of the law firm "Tovsty and partners" is placed on a commuter bus "Uzhgorod-Lysychyvo" The advertising features a photo of Victor Tovsty, who is not only a representative of the company, but, currently, is also a candidate for the mayor of Irshava from the party "Vidrodzhennya".
The bus owned by the "Mukachevo ATP-12106" JSC runs through the town of Irshava, where, in fact, Victor Tovsty is running for the mayor.
The ad featuring the name and photograph of a candidate can be considered the so-called hidden campaigning.
"I have had this advertising for more than two years now. I am a lawyer by profession, I am a founding partner of the law firm "Tovsty and partners", - Victor Tovsty commented on the situation. - There is nothing wrong when the face of the company is represented by its director and founder. And the fact that I decided to run for the mayor, well, this is just a coincidence."
