MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 26th September, 2021) Bavaria's deputy premier Hubert Aiwanger came under criticism on Sunday for publishing an alleged exit poll before the Federal election closed and now faces a fine.
The caption read "Give the last votes to us, Free Voters!" in what is a gross violation of a ban on campaigning.
Markus Blume, the head of the Christian Social Union, a sister party of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union, called Aiwanger's act an "unbelievable case of election manipulation and voter influence."
