Nature sacrificed

Election fever seems to be gripping the country with images of candidates hanging from lampposts and banners festooning traffic islands. I was pleased to note that in west Amman, traffic signs are not obliterated. On the contrary, speed limits are exposed with a smiling candidate attached on the post, above and below, as if to say, "80 please".

Unfortunately, one candidate has posters attached to every single new tree on the central reservation between Eighth Circle and Fastlink/Zein. Protection of the environment is obviously not part of his platform! These poor little saplings will not survive. The municipality should insist that the posters are removed immediately.

the name of the candidate is Khaldoun Nawaf Haina, so let's hope someone who knows him can tell him. T

Maybe the municipality should prepare a work force that could remove all of ugly ads in one single night to clean up the city and to avoid being on one side if it took more time.

Actually, I think you guys aren't thinking straight. Do it the way they would in the US, take them down and then fine them 1JD for each poster hanging that you had to remove. I guarantee that if you make it stick, you won't ever have the problem again :).
