EDUCATION - This elected representative of the opposition believes that the city of Bobigny "aggravates educational and social inequalities" Anger is mounting.
10.54 am, this Saturday morning in Meudon. A round of applause escapes from the René-Leduc gymnasium. The place may still be forbidden to athletes, it was chosen to relocate the official installation of the municipal council and the election of the outgoing mayor (UDI) Denis Larghero, elected with 67.74% his votes on the evening of the 1st tour, on March 15th.
For health reasons, the sports complex was preferred to the town hall, whose board room was deemed too small, to accommodate, in strict compliance with social distancing, the 37 members of the majority and the six elected representatives of opposition. "It is new and it is necessarily a special atmosphere for this first highlight of municipal life, slides the now official mayor of Meudon.

Many elected officials request that the second round be held in June in the 4,000 or so municipalities still without a councilor.

“ There has never been any downtime ”
No surprises indeed during this ceremony. Aside from perhaps the candidacy for the post of mayor of Renaud Dubois, whose list received 18.77% of the votes during the March poll. Aware that the balance of power was not favorable to him, the environmental candidate finally won only 5 small votes, the 37 others being acquired, as expected, from the outgoing mayor. A mayor who, barrier gestures oblige, put on his tricolor scarf himself, alone on the platform.
If he predicts difficult years, during which his team will have to carry out the realization of communal projects and the accompaniment of exit from crisis, Denis Larghero already welcomes the enthusiasm and the envy of his municipal council. "Despite the very specific context, almost all are present, we only had two proxies," welcomes the elected official. It is the proof of the determination and the implication of all. An implication that we were able to measure at the height of the crisis where in Meudon, there was never any downtime… ”
