How to do election posters

When you have a stunning party leader and a willingness to use movie style posters for your election campaign you can come up with some really novel posters.

Yulia Tymoshenko, a.k.a The Orange Princess, is Ukraine's answer to Princess Leia. A journalist interviewed on the radio last week said he should no longer report on the election as he was totally infatuated with her, look at her web site to see why. She is definitely alot better looking than most Irish politicians ever get (I'm sure Deputy Healy-Rae wont mind the comparison).

But she is not by any means just a pretty face. She is a successful business person, though some of her gas dealings are reported as murky. She played a leading role in the Orange revolution and as the former Ukrainian prime minister she was ranked 3rd most powerful woman in 2005 by Forbes.
