Jean-Luc Rotureau's candidacy for Angers mayor office may redistribute cards

It was the ultimate moment. Just on the eve of summer break, Jean-Luc Rotureau announced he will run for Angers mayor office at the next municipal elections planned in April 2014. He said in city's medias he had thoroughly made up his mind since he published his book "Autrement" on spring. If it was not a secret Mr Rotureau never admitted the way Jean-Claude Antonini, former Angers mayor, left office and it looks this is the reason he will be candidate, rather than a rivalvry with Frédéric Béatse, present Angers mayor.

Nevertheless, this will complicate the outlook for the majority of city council. Inevitably, Mr Rotureau will have to draw a project distinctive of Mr Béatse's one. What could be the difference between them and who is going to follow Mr Rotureau in his attempt are some of the questions his candidacy will raise. One of the differences between the two men is the importance they will give to economy versus social during the next six years starting in 2014.

If it is unlikely Jean-Luc Rotureau (left) will do an alliance with Christophe Béchu, himself candidate for the conservative side, Mr Rotureau's candidacy is something more interesting for Mr Béchu rather than Mr Béatse what could lead that last to settle an alliance with the Centrists. Mr Rotureau targeted Jean-Claude Antonini but he could hit Mr Béatse.
