Czech government launches media campaign

01-09-2008

Czech government on Monday launched a campaign worth 10 million crowns, with the official aim to increase people’s awareness of the government’s work. The opposition Social Democrats argue that the campaign, launched just a few weeks ahead of the Senate and regional elections, serves a self promotion of the government and abuses public finances. Advertisements published in Czech dailies draw people’s attention to the changes the cabinet has pushed through since it was established in 2007.
