Curvy wannabe politician Katarzyna Lenart, 23, is hoping to win support with this saucy election campaign vid.
Raunchy Kat is facing stiff opposition as she stands for office as the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) candidate in Lublin, Poland, in the country’s general elections this Sunday.
Her vid shows the brunette peeling off her clothes in a steamy striptease in front of the camera with the slogan: "You want more? Vote for SLD. Only we can do more."
"I am not afraid of challenges and consistently strive to achieve my goals. One of them is being a good politician, who with dedication and responsibility will act in the interests of all citizens and for the good of our country," she said.
And her motto "Bet on the young" has gone down well with students in the city.
"It’s about time we had someone who will stand up for the interests of the younger generation in this country," said economics student Michal Szymanski, 24.
"I like her video. It’s clever," added geography pal Sebastian Janas.
But the busty brunette has been slammed by older constituents.
"This is a cheap trick to try and woo voters. What a 23-year-old stripping off her clothes can do for the country is beyond me," said local shopkeeper Bronislaw Jankowski, 54.
