Dublin People news standards

Should a local newspaper entirely reproduce a press release written by a Councillor announcing he's going for re-election (only swapping I for name/he). The Northside People news reproduced the whole thing and the councilor paid for an ad on page 2.

Ads and articles = advertorial

I've also seen articles like this, if the whole page is an ad it should say so.
