Frédéric Béatse and Christophe Béchu introduced their ideas for Angers on France 3

Frédéric Béatse and Christophe Béchu, both of them candidates to the 2014 municipal elections were on Decembrer 13th on France 3 channel to introduce their respective programmes and the mood of their electoral campaign. The main facilities these reprentatives plan to set up in the city during the next term were the principal topic of those successive expressions, Christophe Béchu first, then Frédéric Béatse. The way the public channel led those interviewes gives the idea the two candidates are in the same political position : each of them with a challenger in his own side, Laurent Gérault against Mr. Béchu and Jean-Luc Rotureau against Mr. Béatse. 

Regarding the 1st round of the municipal elections, Christophe Béchu explained why Laurent Gérault will not be included in his list : "I shall not negociate with the political structures and I shall not change my list two weeks before the second round". Frédéric Bétase having a similar problem with Jean-Luc Rotureau, he said Mr. Rotureau's candidacy was "a disappointment". 

But the largest part of the broadcast was dedicated to the facilities both candidates want to implement in Angers. The first opposition is about the route of the tramway between Belle-Beille and Monplaisir. The current mayor wants to see it joining the railway station (from the Basse-Chaîne bridge) while his opponent prefers to locate it differently (from the Verdun bridge towards the centre of congress). Another major approach is about the redevelopment of the Maine banks. Mr. Béchu is favourable to a cover othe current speedway et criticize the idea of the city council majority to burry that facility in order to build a new one in surface, while the current mayor thinks "Mr. Béchu's project brings back Angers to the 70's".

The economy issue was rather analysed than a review of projects. Mr. Béatse bets on the professional electronic (Loire Electronic Valley) to replace the consumer electronic disappearance (Technicolor) and Mr. Béchu in a big bang in the Angers economic structures he wants to gather to be more efficient. The true face to face between candidates will come later, said France 3.
