Direction-Social Democracy (SMER) - Bratislava, 2010
The text reads: "Social market economics", "For people, for Slovakia". In 2010 the economic crisis was the main election issue, and SMER proclaimed that their goal was to protect ordinary citizens from the worst impacts of the downturn. In response to this slogan, someone has added (as you can see in the second picture in closeup) a Communist hammer and sickle pin to Fico's suit, and a set of 500 Euro banknotes to the suit of then-Finance Minister Ján Počiatek.
