A regional socialist convention will talk about two sensitive issues for Angers

Angers will host on October 19th the regional convention of the Parti socialiste but the prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, will not finally come for reasons not disclosed by his administration. The event will be opened by Frédéric Béatse, Angers mayor and candidate to his own succession. Mr. Béatse, officialy supported by the Angers section of the Ps, will not intervene in the two debates planned that day about "The cities in network, a balanced regional development" and "Cities and countryside, stronger together?".

The first issue may nevertheless interest Angers mayor,
whatever be their political trend, because that town always claimed that the economic development had to be better shared between Nantes and its neighbour. Even if both of them are governed by socialist majorities, their interests and their assets are not always compatible. The second topic is also quite sensitive in Angers and surroundings because voices (like the mayor of Trélazé and socialist member of parliament, Marc Goua) recently asked to Angers to leave the presidency of Angers Loire Métropole.

The gathering of Pays de la Loire socialists supporters and decision-makers could have to face external dispute coming from the members of "Angers vivre mieux naturellement". That ecologist list, candidate to the next municipal elections, plans to seize the opportunity of that convention to relay fierce critics againts the Notre-Dame-des Landes airport scheme.
