This is a first. Never Martine Aubry has not been as much in trouble in Lille, within a week of the second round. In his first three elections, the socialists had managed to outrun the right in the first round, the better to defeat it in the second. Almost a walk of health in the capital of Flanders, of which the heart beats historically to the left... But in 2020, the situation has changed. Martine Aubry will now have to face its historic allies, the environmentalists. Not the same story. Stephane Bally, the head of the list EELV, came second in the first round (24,53 %), disturbing the mayor's outgoing (29,80 %). And in the light of the latest polls, very clever one who can predict who will hold the office of mayor next Sunday... so much so that the candidate LREM, Violette Spillebout, finish third on 15 march (17,53 %), could well steal a few votes precious.see also : Municipal: Martine Aubry can she lose to Lille?

"Me, I have the pride of having kept the popular classes", also wanted to recall the mayor outbound.
