When the eyes of the world are on us it is important that we put up ourselves in a light that others will respect and admire. Thus far we have lawyers in Europe stating that it is a disgrace to be acting in this way. Where political opponents are throwing accusations of fraud and throwing lawsuits around. Another marked propensity is to throw large amounts of dollars around on advertising to win votes. It is already proved that the more money used in this way the more votes are garnered. Equally, it is also proved if you do not throw large sums of money around there is no vote.
In their countries, there is obviously a culture that does not allow uncountable money flowing for votes. They have strict caps on what can be spent which is why culturally they have differences in views.
