The ambitious socialist Nadia Pellefigue is content with third place (18.53%). Relying on this non-negligible result, however, the candidate for the head of the "A New Energy" list (Socialist Party, Left Radical Party, Communist Party) wants to impose her conditions before joining forces with the Citizen Archipelago.

"We are not in the logic of a carpet dealer or lying poker", defends Nadia Pellefigue, the elected representative in the Occitania region responsible for economic development and research.

A proposition swept by the principal concerned. “It is presented as a prerequisite for a rally and based on the result of the first round. It seems to me daring to ask for it at this stage. I am not in a distribution of positions. This question will be dealt with in a second time, after June 28, with the mayors of the thirty-six cities ", specifies this lawyer of training 39 years old, who considers as" essential "the union of the two lists.

Points of divergence

Although the measures of a joint project were discussed in the evening of the results of the first round, the agreement was still not finalized at the end of April. Because the points of divergence between the two lists seem irreconcilable.

Nevertheless, the union of the left is not in vain, want to positivize the two candidates who resumed discussions again Thursday, May 28, five days before the lists are tabled. Antoine Maurice and Nadia Pellefigu are due to announce their decision mid-day Friday, May 29. With 5.66% of the vote in the first round, Pierre Cohen, the former socialist mayor of Toulouse from 2008 to 2014, who coveted a second term this time with Generation. s, decided to join the Citizen Archipelago.

And then, the pandemic went through there and, with it, its share of economic consequences, which will weigh in the debate between the two towers. Even if Toulouse is relatively spared from the health crisis, the expected repercussions on aeronautics promise to be significant. However, this sector, driven by Airbus, whose head office is in Blagnac in the Toulouse suburbs, is the engine of the metropolitan area, with nearly 85,000 jobs.

Faced with this crisis situation, the two candidates on the left modify their program to respond to the emergency. "In this period, immobility would not be responsible. We must ensure that the impact of the crisis is absorbed as strongly as possible and that aeronautics is supported on trajectories that allow a more sustainable future, "specifies Nadia Pellefigue.

"Significant loss of voice"

In Toulouse, as everywhere in France, abstention broke records during the first round. Only 36.66% of voters in Toulouse went to the polls, against 54.5% in 2014. "The fear of the virus has played a lot, analyzes Jean-Luc Moudenc, the outgoing mayor showered by the result obtained on March 15, below expectations. We can see that many electors who identify with the current municipality did not come to vote. The voice losses are considerable but there is no transfer to the other lists. »

Participation will therefore be a central issue in the second round. To encourage abstainers to vote, the 59-year-old Christian Democrat centrist defined a campaign "method" that will be on track in a few days.

Will the mayor benefit from a crisis management effect during the Covid-19 epidemic? For Nadia Pellefigue, there is no doubt. "He had, during two months of confinement, the exclusivity of the direct relationship with the Toulouse people," deplores the candidate. Jean-Luc Moudenc is more moderate than his opponent. "I don't know if it's an asset. Because June 28 is far away. And if the epidemic continues to decline, people will move on. "One month before the second ballot, the campaign rarely seemed so loose, so uncertain, in Toulouse.
