It’s the phase of the electoral process, in which political parties and their candidates in the elections advertise themselves, before voting.

The electoral campaign opens when the previous Chambers are dissolved and must close at least two days before voting. Its duration has been shortened from 70 to 45 days to avoid an excessive lack of power for the country, and to reduce the expenses resulting from a longer electoral campaign.

During the election campaign, illuminated advertising is prohibited and the launch of leaflets is prohibited. The use of loudspeakers on mobile vehicles is allowed only for the announcement of the times and locations of the electoral rallies.

Electoral posters can only be posted on special billboards and it is forbidden to post them on buildings.
