Jean-Luc Rotureau sees a second chance in the Angers first primaries

The support given by the prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, at the end of his visit in Angers a few days ago, to the city mayor, Frédéric Béatse, didn't apease the debate between Mr Béatse and his left contender for the municipal ballot of 2014, Jean-Luc Rotureau. Mr Ayrault indicated Frédéric Béatse was the best choice for Angers inhabitants, "I praise the qualities of the Angers territoriy and of his young mayor".

Indeed, Mr Rotureau announced today that "next week the Angers members of the Socialist Party will debate and vote about the best way for them to choose their candidate : primaries as I am calling for that since two years". But the deputy-mayor doesn't say what he will do if these supporters do not select the primaries way. Angers medias reports that he could create its own list or will join another candidate. Originally, Mr Rotureau wanted opened primaries to all Angers citizens.

But it is not sure that Mr Rotureau has interest to apply pressure on his own side because that could be very useful for the Angers right opposition and its leader, Christophe Béchu. But it is clear that the campaign will gain in intensity even before summer. And the current position of the French lef as well as its balance on the economic field (even in Angers) is presently an asset... On the right side, primaries are not planned. Until now.
