The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) on Tuesday has continued to remove candidates’ posters and banners left over from their promotional campaigns for the Municipality and Decentralisation elections.

Following last week’s elections, just a very small number of candidates removed their banners and pictures from the streets of Amman, according to Basem Tarawneh, the city’s Deputy Director responsible for matters concerning Amman’s areas and environment.

The terms and conditions of the election campaign require the candidates to remove their banners within four days after the end of the elections.

The conditions were put in place in order to oblige candidates to clean up after themselves.

Should they refuse to abide the rules, the municipality will not return the deposit they paid before the campaign, in addition to charging them for cleaning costs and a total of 25% for administrative fees.
