The Media Council has no competence over street posters
The National Media and Infocommunications Authority, as well as the Media Council, has competence only to conduct any kind of proceedings over advertisements appearing in media content; therefore, it is unable to consider the merits of any request concerning posters submitted by the Párbeszéd (Dialogue) Party, the Együtt (Together) Party or any other organisation or individual. As media regulation does not apply to posters, the Media Council is not in a position to assess the legality of poster campaigns.
