Voting, masks, powers of attorney... How will take place the second round of municipal

A longer campaign but under constraint, a voting hidden... In about 5000 commons, the second round of municipal elections and local authorities, postponed, and now set at 28 June, will look like no other. A "double responsibility" is presented to the executive board: "ensuring the security" of the voters as candidates, and to ensure "the sincerity of the ballot," said Friday prime minister. Hence the appeal of the minister of the Interior to adopt a "discipline-specific" approach to this election is unprecedented, in the midst of the epidemic of coronavirus.

● A longer campaign and before any digital...

A campaign exceptionally long horizon. While a week was to separate the first of the second round, the candidates have more than a month to organize. The possible mergers between the lists will have to be quickly arrested, because the declarations of candidacy must be filed no later than Tuesday, 2 June.

therefore, an unprecedented campaign will begin. Public meetings, the operations of towing... The traditional highlights of the period between the two rounds will be reduced to the strict minimum or even avoided. The holding of the election "should not become a factor of the circulation of the virus," warned the minister of the Interior, Christophe Castaner, calling on them to "do campaign differently, in respect of systematic gestures-fence".

Without shaking hands, so. Instead, with a mask on the face. And focusing on a "digital campaign" with interventions "in the media". The minister also mentioned the "professions of faith, more detailed" so that the candidates can relate their program to the attention of the voters. These terms and conditions must be discussed with the representatives of the political parties as early as next week.

● ...may be interrupted

The candidates involved in the campaign must be ready to stop it all. As recommended by the scientific Council, the sanitary conditions will be re-evaluated before the second round. A "closed revoyure" to come, "presumably in two weeks", said the prime minister. A new deferral election may be pronounced in the case of a health situation deteriorated.

To prepare, the government will present on Wednesday, in the council of ministers, two bills that will be listed on the agenda of the Parliament. Their content is explosive : they include, in particular, to cancel the first round in the municipalities where it has not been decisive, to reorganize the two towers, by January 2021, and to postpone the senatorial elections scheduled for September. Never seen before, "just in case".

● A vote with mask mandatory and proxies facilitated

On 28 June, the day of the vote, "all measures will be taken to ensure the safety in the office", has promised Christophe Castaner, eager to avoid a repeat of the forbearance historical (44,66%) identified in the first round.

The port of the mask will be mandatory for the voters and the members of the offices - it will be for the "general public" for the first, "surgical" for the latter, said the minister. The precautions taken last march 15 will be rolled over : floor markings, to maintain the distances between the individuals, a signature by the voter with his own pen, or a provision in a hydroalcoholic gel or an installation of a "water point" for washing hands.

The collection of proxies will also be facilitated, especially in the long-term care facilities and vulnerable people in the home to which police officers may pay a visit to to accomplish this approach. The vote by correspondence and the establishment of a power of attorney online, however, remain excluded. The organization of voting operations should be subject to consultation with the mayors, next week. In total, about one voter in three (16.5 million registered members) is called to the polls on 28 June.

And well the democracy has the Macron mask on the nose c is now without me. All the elected mayors in large cities have no legitimacy. Shame on this government. If election, then life is as it was before and the virus no longer exists.

It was raced. E. Philip should be able to easily find the town hall of le Havre. Many commentators of this article to announce their intention not to participate in this election charade. Yet to go there would be a way, by voting against the friends of the powerful (LREM, centrists, socialists chameleon), to show his disapproval in front of this maneuver outrageous.
