Christophe Béchu makes official his candidacy to Angers mayor office

Chritophe Béchu
If there is suspense about who will be with Frédéric Béatse, current Angers mayor and candidate for a new term, there is also some uncertainty about the persons his challenger, Christophe Béchu, current president of the Conseil général de Maine-et-Loire, will rally for the 2014 municipal elections. A series of events could have prompted this one to announce, maybe in advance on his initial agenda, that he will stand for the office of Angers mayor next year.

Laurent Gérault
It the "Appel des Angevins pour le changement", a community favourable to Mr Béchu's candidacy, has gathered hundreds of supports, some of the post prominent members of the municipal opposition, would not be part of that list. Recently, one of the opposition town councillors, Laurent Gérault, expressed his anger after one of his close aides, choose to support Christophe Béchu and qualified that departure of "treason". That fact will not be helpful to restore friendship between Mr Gérault and Mr Béchu. Both said that they will compete for Angers mayor office without the support of the other.

Regarding an alliance with Jean-Luc Rotureau, current Angers deputy mayor, the challenger of Frédéric Béatse said such a scheme had not been offered to Mr Rotureau, but added that "it was not be intellectually unimaginable". Mr Rotureau will have all the summer to think about it.
