Windows reserved especially for President Nicolas Sarkozy’s UMP party campaign posters were painted pink by an anonymous decorator in La Rochelle this weekend.

Local candidate for the UMP, Sally Chadjaa, said in a press release the act was “pathetic and puerile”.

“Eight days before the second round of presidential elections, this act is nothing more than an attempt to unsettle the UMP and Nicolas Sarkozy.”

Chadjaa had reported the incident to the police to find out the culprit behind the vandalism.

As for the choice of paint, Chadjaa said she believed it was a reference to the UMP's Socialist Party rival: “It reminds you of the colours of a certain party.”

The UMP in La Rochelle has requested the services of the socialist-led town hall to help clean off the paint, but has yet to receive a response.
