Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) - Bratislava, 2010
The text reads: "Tell the truth", "Provide work", "Maintain order". This one is a classic HZDS billboard, with leader Vladimír Mečiar sitting at a computer (showing how capable he is at using modern technology) surrounded by mostly young professionals, including attractive women on either side. It was hard not to laugh during the 2010 campaign watching HZDS try to make itself appear relevant in the modern era.
