Poster in Goris, Armenia

It’s been more than a year since the last presidential election in Armenia, but you may still spot this poster in Goris.

What a joke.

You can probably find signs up extolling the values of communism and soviets too.

Let's leave the retread users of our population behind.

Everybody seems to be fed up with your hateful, illogical remarks, Anon. Even a trifle reminder of people fighting for their rights,makes you crazy. See a psychiatrist.

Hey, where's my credit! Just kidding... ;-)

BTW: Anonymous is right, many faded posters from past elections are still to be seen on walls in the country.

There's one of Geghamian from 2003 near my building and there used to be (still is?) one of Demirchian on the side of the National Art Gallery on Republic Square.

Basically, the law dictates that all campaign posters are cleared off after elections, but of course, they're not.

On the other hand, a common practice is to deface the posters or try to tear them off if at eye-level.
