The basics :The Greens are the big winners of municipal elections, whose second round was held on Sunday 28 June. They have won the city halls of several major cities such as Lyon, Bordeaux or Strasbourg. In Paris, socialist Anne Hidaglo was re-elected, then that Agnès Buzyn (candidate LREM) has not obtained enough votes to hold a seat in the council of Paris. On the side of Marseille, the situation is more confused. The candidate ecologist Michele Rubirola, at the head of a left coalition, has claimed a " relative victory ". But the candidate LR Martine Vassal insisted on the fact that there was at this stage "no majority in Marseille," giving appointment to the election of the mayor by the city council next Friday.
In le Havre, the Prime minister Edouard Philippe was elected with a comfortable majority (59 % of the vote).
The second round of the municipal has been marked by an abstention on the record, around 60 %.
It is in this context that the president of the Republic received Monday June 29, in the late morning, the 150 members of the 'Convention' for the climate. The head of the State should make " a speech very offensive ", with " the ambition of ecological asserted ", which will be decisive for the result, according to his relatives.
