Election campaign propaganda for Kadima, Likud, Israel Beiteinu and the National Union has cluttered and littered public spaces in violation of the law, the Council for a Beautiful Israel said on Tuesday.
The council has set up a team to track the parties' illegal use of public spaces for tacking up campaign posters and other election paraphernalia.
At the beginning of the campaign, council CEO Eshel Segal contacted all the parties and implored them to adhere to the laws that protect the public's spaces from election litter.
The council's team found posters illegally hung on trees, bridges, fences and other public structures.
Segal complained that the parties had completely ignored his plea and had instead turned the country's yards into "garbage bins."
"What has emerged from the tours of our volunteers throughout the country is a depressing picture. The yards of the state have turned into the garbage bins of our future leaders. It is astonishing that despite our request, and despite the blatant violation of the law, we have been totally ignored by the parties, which continue to coarsely dominate the public space," he declared in a statement.
