A MAYORAL CANDIDATE in Bosnia’s fourth-largest city is using one of the Internet’s greatest lures — pornography — to draw attention to his campaign.

Mirad Hadziahmetovic is an independent candidate with a relatively slim chance of winning the October election in Zenica.

He said Thursday that he decided to upload pornographic video clips to his official campaign site after realizing that large numbers of people use the Web to peruse sexual content.

To view the material on his site, visitors must answer questions, such as “What is more important for Zenica, job creation or filling of the municipal budget?”

At the end of each clip there is a separately recorded video of Hadziahmetovic talking directly to camera and saying: “If you liked this clip, vote for me.”
