Cape Town - With election day just around the corner Nando's has launched its own campaign on Twitter.

"Every party needs a puppet, but don't spoil your vote, let us spoil the voters coz [sic] we're as good on the left wing as we are on the right!" it reads.

A competition that requires Twitter users to tweet open letters to politicians is running on the social platform with the hashtag #HotOrNot.

According to a tweet the company is set to release sauce bottles with "party finger puppets" on it, in major supermarkets nationwide to help you fire up the debate.

Nando's also tweeted "left wing or right, our sauces make politics palatable."

Well-known for its humour in campaigns Nando's tweeted various #HotOrNot tweets containing quotes by politicians, asking users to comment on it.

Some of the tweets include:
"I'm like Paul who used to be Saul but saw the light enroute to Damascus. The life of sushi&my army of women I put behind me. Kunene #HotOrNot"

"Real freedom is being able to choose whichever sauce you want with your Nandos chicken," a user tweeted to the VoteNandos account.
