  Byelections called for Toronto Centre, York Centre on Oct. 26 Voters in two Toronto ridings will head to the polls on Oct. 26 to choose a new MP. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced byelections for Toronto Centre — the riding held by former finance minister Bill Morneau until his resignation last month — and York Centre, vacant since Liberal backbencher Michael Levitt left to take a job with a Jewish human rights organization. The Liberals named broadcaster Marci Ien as their candidate for Toronto Centre yesterday and already had named Ya'ara Saks as their contender for York Centre. The NDP has not yet officially nominated candidates for the two byelections.

Sunday evening 172 seats out of 348 are put into play. The Ministry of the Interior began broadcasting the results from 5.30 p.m.

Almost half of the seats in the Senate were to be filled, Sunday, September 27, in 58 metropolitan departments, one department and four overseas communities.

The renewal by half of the Senate every three years is played at the level of the department. This year, 172 seats out of 348 are concerned, ie the elected representatives of 58 metropolitan departments between Ain and Indre and between Bas-Rhin and the Territoire de Belfort, outside Ile-de-France. Overseas are also renewed the senators of Guyana and 4 communities (Wallis and Futuna, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint-Martin, French Polynesia). 117 outgoing candidates represented themselves.

In Yonne, the Secretary of State for Tourism, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, has also been re-elected, according to parliamentary sources. However, he will not sit in the Senate while he remains in government. Georges Patient (LREM group) was also reelected in the first round in Guyana.

In the senatorial majority, the senators LR Rémy Pointereau (Cher), Cédric Perrin in the Territoire de Belfort, Claude Nougein in Corrèze, Alain Joyandet in Haute-Saône, Jean-Jacques Panunzi in Corsica were re-elected in the first round. South, Philippe Mouiller in Deux-Sèvres, Mathieu Danaud (Ardèche) or Daniel Gremillet in the Vosges.

Election of a Corsican nationalist, a first

Among the re-elected centrists: Dominique Vérien (UDI) in Yonne, Philippe Bonnecarrère (Tarn), Bernard Delcros (Cantal), Evelyne Perrot (Aube).

The president of the group of Independents, Claude Malhuret, is confirmed in Allier, as well as Daniel Chasseing in Corrèze and Alain Marc in Aveyron. With 6 renewable seats out of 13, Claude Malhuret's group would thus remain low (10 elected representatives are needed to form a group).

A surprise from the environmentalists?

The leaders of the two major components of the majority, Bruno Retailleau (Les Républicains) and Hervé Marseille (centrist) expect the current political configuration to be maintained.

On the left, Patrick Kanner, the leader of the Socialists (35 renewable seats out of 71) aims to maintain. "It is relatively stable," group spokesman Rachid Temal said on Sunday. For him, "it is important that we are the second group, the only left group capable of bringing a constitutional complaint to us on our own if necessary", thanks to the number of elected officials.

The announced surprise should therefore come from environmentalists. With five new elected officials, which seems feasible on paper, who would be added to a "core" of five senators already in place - the ecologists Esther Benbassa, Guillaume Gontard, Ronan Dantec, Joël Labbé and Sophie Taillé-Polian of Générations - the account would be good for forming a group.

For the next leader of the Greens, the hard part comes next .
Whoever wins the Green Party leadership race today takes over a job that might have looked a lot better when it became available a little under a year ago.
