Parties to be invoiced for posters

2011-06-07 17:00
Johannesburg - Political parties which have not removed election posters in Ekurhuleni will soon be invoiced for illegal advertising, the metro's municipality said on Monday.

"According to Ekurhuleni's by-laws political parties had 10 days after election day to remove their posters... exceeding this constitutes illegal advertising," spokesperson Zweli Dlamini said in a statement.

"Failure to do this has resulted in council removing... piles and piles of posters... at the promulgated tariff of R27 per poster."

The municipality said parties had to respect the laws of the land by adhering to the by-laws that they collectively passed.
