23: 15 - Abstention, green wave, Hidalgo who triumph in Paris : here are the key points in this second round of local elections


AN ABSTENTION HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF CORONAVIRUS. Among the 16.5 million eligible voters called to vote on 4 820 commons for the second round of municipal elections, they are likely to have shunned the ballot. The participation rate is set between 40 % and 41 %, depending on estimates, compared to 62.1 % in 2014. This abstention history fits in the context of a public health crisis related to the outbreak of coronavirus, which has slowed down the voters, in spite of the health measures to be strengthened, while the candidates were virtually not able to campaign, three months after a first round marked by a high abstention rate.

STRONG BREAKTHROUGH OF the ECOLOGISTS. environmentalists won a big victory in Lyon, where Grégory Doucet, at the head of a coalition EELV-PS-PCF-BIA, leads with more than 50 % of the votes, according to the estimates, before Yann Cucherat, protégé of the outgoing mayor Gérard Collomb. They snapped up as Marseille thanks to Michèle Rubirola, at the head of a coalition of the left, which gets around 40 % of the vote, ahead of the candidate LR Martine Vassal, and the candidate RN Stéphane Ravier. Environmentalists also earn Bordeaux , , where Stone Hurmic arrives ahead of the outgoing mayor LR, Nicolas Florian, but also Strasbourg, Tours, Poitiers, Besançon and Annecy.

ANNE HIDALGO ELECTED by an ABSOLUTE MAJORITY IN PARIS. In the capital, Anne Hidalgo, allied with EELV, victorious in the triangular with more than 50 % of the vote, far ahead of the candidate LR Rachida Dati (around 32 %), and the candidate LREM Agnès Buzyn (from 13.7 to 16 %).

DOWNFALL OF LREM. The president's party does not win any large city and is required to le Havre, through to the Prime minister. The spokesman of the government, Sibeth Ndiaye, expressed the "disappointment" of the majority, which recorded scores sometimes "extremely disappointing" because of its "divisions" during the municipal. Small consolation, François Bayrou, head of the MoDem, was re-elected in Pau. And in Bordeaux, the outgoing mayor Jean-Luc Moudenc (candidate LR supported by The Republic walk) keeps his seat.

THE RN WON PERPIGNAN. The "republican front" has not worked in Perpignan, where the candidate of the RN Louis Aliot won by 53.1% to 54% of the vote in the face of the outgoing mayor Jean-Marc Pujol (LR), according to estimates. With its 120 000 inhabitants, it is the largest city conquered by the RN from Toulon (1995-2001). "A victory symbolic and a real place, because we will also be able to demonstrate that we are able to manage large communities," said Marine Le Pen.

GOOD RESISTANCE OF the TRADITIONAL PARTIES, the PS AND LR. in Addition to Hidalgo, who retains Paris, the PS guard to Lille, where Martine Aubry wins narrowly his 4th term, with only 227 votes difference against its competitor environmentalist Stéphane Baly. Socialists win Nancy (Matthew Klein wins against the outgoing mayor radical Laurent Hénart), and also retain Rennes, Nantes and Le Mans. The First secretary of the PS, Olivier Faure, welcomed the "great victories" won by the socialists and the environmentalists, often collected in the second round.

To the right, Republicans remain Toulouse, where the outgoing mayor Jean-Luc Moudenc (supported by The Republic on) wins. In Nice, the outgoing mayor Christian Estrosi (The Republicans) has claimed victory in his city, and in Aix-en-Provence, the LR Maryse Joissains-Masini was re-elected, with 43.5 % of the vote. According to the president of LR Christian Jacob, his party "revives the victory" by winning "more than half of the towns and cities of over 9,000 inhabitants." (With AFP)
