Christophe Béchu will not be mayor, according to the Angers city website

Le site web de la ville d'Angers vient de révéler implicitement que Christophe Béchu ne serait pas le prochain maire. 

A little sentence about the first session of the new Angers city council planned on April 4th 5 pm could give to some internet viewers the feeling that there is no regard for the Angers pour vous team whose the first decision will be the election of the mayor. Are things already done? Maybe, and even probably.

But wasn't it curious to announce on the city website, in a headline : "The new Angers mayor, Christophe Béchu, will be elected on Friday"? Faux-pas or denigration, the news nevertheless goes on : "[The city town counsillors] will be called to elect the new mayor, Christophe Béchu, and to decide on the number of his deputy-mayors as to elect them".

Of course, an absence of candidacy from Mr. Béchu would be rather surprising after he made public on September 6th that he would run for Angers mayor office. It's also unlikely that a casualty would impede him to come after Frédéric Béatse. But, formally, the assembly has its say and was it the job of the city council website to jump to the conclusion before the choice has been made up? It is surely not the case.

Because, the fact is : the news was published on April 1st, a day favourable to jokes. That day, people use to say things that are not true and even insist on statements opposite to the truth. Here the statement is : Christophe Béchu will be elected mas new Angers mayor. So the truth is : he will not be. Two questions then come to mind. First, who could be the alternative candidates? Secondly, who has the paternity of the news? The current or the future city council?

Who can you trust?
