The legislative ballots should lead the Angers right political apparatus to reconsider his backings

The results of the legislative elections in Angers have confirmeda premonition : some changes could be in way inside the representation of the city in the National Assembly. After mandates in 1988, 1993, 1977 dissolution), 2002 and 2007, Hervé de Charette, 74, a politician from right and center, was defeated by Serge Bardy, 65, his socialist challenger. For the outgoing representative, numerous change may explain his defeat : the age, the social changes in the constituencie (which is influenced by the extension of the city of Nantes oriented to left) his political evolution from right to centre and probably an erosion after five mandates.

Another major change was close to happen. If the former minister, Marc Laffineur, 67, whose constituency covers a part of Angers city, has been reelected, his margin is extremely narrow : a few dozen of voices against his challenger. In his case, the phenomena of erosion is maybe at work : Mr Laffineur was elected in 1988, 24 years ago and that could be his last (national) mandate. Such outcomes should lead the sponsors of their candidacies to think about the opporunity to renew the political staff after 3 mandates. Because the political fate of their constituencies follows their own political fate. Maybe constituencies are not properties?
