Danish politician bares all in campaign poster
A DANISH politician is willing to do whatever it takes to become Denmark's next prime minister, even if that means having to bare it all.
In a bid to win the people's support, John Erik Wagner posed nude for a risque campaign poster, which can now be found all over Copenhagen, the capital.
He does not leave much to the imagination. Aside from a cowboy hat and a gun holster strapped to his waist, the 52-year-old is pretty much in his birthday suit.
But apparently, there is nothing wrong with appearing nude in the poster.
Copenhagen Municipality spokesman Ivan Partov said: "It's not against the law in itself to hang that kind of poster up, if you're running in the general election."
According to Mr Partov, the important thing is that the posters do not distract road users.
He added: "But if the poster is deemed to interfere with road users' attention, then it's another matter.
"We have now reviewed the poster and assessed that it is not problematic. So it won't be taken down."
Danish site The Local reported that despite Mr Wagner's daring stunt, the chances of him being elected are very slim.
