This was an issue during the last elections and is and issue in the current one: the proliferation of advertisements (in all forms of media) by ministries, statutory bodies, state enterprises and entities.

Just because something is not illegal does not mean that it is ethical (and vice versa I suppose…).

My humble suggestion, as soon as the date for elections is announced, all advertising (not already committed / officially booked) by state concerns should cease, with the exception of those promoting essential services.

Use the party’s campaign funds to promote the party, not taxpayers’ money.
