Candidates speed up the gathering of their running mates

Few by few candidates to the 2014 municipal elections are constituting their teams. After a period dedicated to establish alliances, not always with success, now the time has come for candidates to choose running mates. Jean-Luc Rotureau, former deputy-mayor, who decided to challenge the current Angers mayor on the left, has recently announced the names of the people who would be his town councillors.

If Mr. Rotureau on the left does not start as favourite, he looks never-theless to have already gathered his list because he made, on his website, the promise, that "every week" four new running mates would be officialized. The first were published a week ago and four others have just been revealed.  Some of them were already involved in local politics. Among the first four running mates, there are Rachida Ouattara, Marie-Paul Tremot-Streliski already town councillors and Samira Tamtouir, former town councillor. Others are beginners in local politics. A new group of four persons will appear on Jean-Luc Rotureau's website on January 6th.

On the right side, Christophe Béchu had introduced his first running mates a few weeks ago and has just added others more recently. Two of them were already members of the current minority in town council : Bernard Dupré and Gilles Groussard. His challenger on the centre, Laurent Gérault, displayed the members of his team. Frédéric Béatse - apparently - didn't yet disclosed who will be his running mates on his website Aimer Angers, the page of his supporters. The ability to gather a list as soon as possible may have political meanings for voters.
