Frédéric Beatse, as next mayor of Angers? is now in orbit for the next municipal polls in 2014

The majority side of Angers town hall, constituted by members of the Parti socialiste and of Europe-Ecologie-Les Verts, gathered on 20th of January, choose Fréderic Beatse as successor of Jean-Claude Antonini, who has resigned the same day of his office. The sequences were politically perfect and the competitor of Mr Beatse, Jean-Luc Rotureau, is doubly defeated: first because because he got 14 favourable bulletins against 28 for the winner, secondly because the municipal primary he wanted becomes useless.
Mr Rotureau didn't comment the results of the majority side's vote but will talk next week. Logically, if Mr Beatse, supported by Mr Antonini who stays at the head of Angers Loire Métropole, a territorial authority whose Angers city is part, he could be the natural candidate of the present majority at city hall.
Some Angers inhabitants could think that they have been misled by Mr Antonini who should not have commented on the rumours regarding his possible dismissal because of health problems. That makes the difference with the choice Jean Monnier, made in 1998, when he resigned two years before the end of his term, in favour of Mr Antonini. The opposition, and its leader, Christophe Béchu, know who they will have to challenge in 2014. After the next presidential and legislative polls, the municipal campaign could start in Angers...
