Candidates' advertising banners should be installed in appropriate places not in vehicles and public transport, the property of government and government departments, and places that cause harassment of the people that has to be prevented seriously. Since the provinces of Nangarhar, Kandahar, Herat and Kabul are transit provinces in Afghanistan, it is necessary to increase the share of these provinces in accordance with the main population, and the number of citizens who are from other provinces or displaced, or the refugees from the neighboring countries.
