Marko – whose standing for office in Varna, Bulgaria – is promising hard work, no kickbacks and a mulish determination.
Society for a New Bulgaria campaign director Angel Dyankov explained: "Unlike the other mayoral candidates and politicians, Marko has a strong character, doesn't steal, doesn't lie, and gets the work done."
Incumbent mayor Kiril Yordanov has refused to share a platform with his rival saying it is "undignified".
But Mr Dyankov commented: "He is right. Just think how Marko would feel sharing a stage with such a political crook.
"It would be very undignified for any self respecting donkey."Post published in: News
