November 16 is the day for local elections in the Danish city of Aarhus, where the city must vote 31 new members to its own city council.
In this connection, it has received several pictures of the politician Nana Harring, who represents the Danish People’s Party, on the city’s lampposts.
However, it is not this picture that attracts the most attention, but the picture Harring posted on his own Instagram profile the day before.
She is sitting in a chair wearing a black, transparent bodystocking with lace.
– It is the same skilled photography that has taken the picture on my election poster that has taken this. But this picture will probably not be hung on the lampposts, the politician writes.
– Does not say anything about my qualities
To Danish BT, who first mentioned the case, Harring explains that the picture was initially posted for fun, but that there is also another explanation behind it.
– I do not think that you have to change yourself, even if you want to change society. I think I have some concrete things I want to change to make Aarhus a better place to be. It does not change even if I put a picture of myself in a bodystocking, she tells the newspaper.
She then explains that she is not afraid of losing any votes because of the picture.
– The votes I could potentially lose, I have probably lost beforehand, since I am who I am. I do not want to change that.
She also comes with a sting to those who prejudge her because of the picture.
– The fact that I post lightly dressed photos on Instagram does not say anything about my qualities as a politician.
Pictures were scattered
This is not the first time that the local politician has ended up in the media spotlight due to lightly dressed images.
In April this year, she candidly recounted how more private photos and videos of her were spread on social media in 2017.
“I think it’s the worst thing I’ve experienced in my entire life,” Harring told the TV channel TV Midwest.
The pictures were posted on the intranet of Harring’s school, and could thus be posted by both students and teachers, and was just one of several cases in which a man was investigated for having stolen private and intimate pictures from 500 Danish women .
