Beirut Governor Ziad Chbib has ordered the removal of illegally placed municipal election posters on public walls, fences, bridges, traffic lights, poles and others. He has also vowed to fine candidates who break the law.

I wish he had warned candidates before electoral campaigns had kicked off but it’s good news (as long as it’s implemented). I still can’t understand how people can vote for candidates who don’t have a problem polluting their own city’s streets and walls.
