Eco-activist group wants halt to election posters, hoardings

The country’s best known ecology activist group, the Center for Environmental Justice, yesterday filed a writ petition in the Court of Appeal demanding a halt to the impending deluge of posters, flyers, hoardings, banners and other visual political communication paraphernalia that has habitually blanketed the country during election campaigns. The CEJ petition seeks an order directing the authorities to take necessary steps to implement the draft Regulation on visual pollution through Banners, Hoardings and posters during elections.

The petitioner states that with the upcoming election there is a “grave necessity” that the relevant drafted Regulation be implemented at the earliest as the election campaign threatens to obliterate the natural beauty and vistas of the country’s cities and major towns.
