The major event of this electoral evening in Hauts-de-France is the snatch victory, by Martine Aubry in Lille. During the second round of
municipal, the outgoing mayor beat, on the wire, the ecologist Stéphane Baly by 227 votes, winning his 4th mandate.
Two other big cities of the Lille metropolis confirmed the outgoing. In Roubaix, very much in the lead in the first round (41.9%) before a left in dispersed order, Guillaume Delbar (DvD) won in the second, but in finer proportions, with 56.21%, against Karim Amrouni.
Gérard Caudron, mayor (DvG) from 1977 to 2001, then from 2008 to 2020, won again at Villeneuve-d’Ascq for a 7th term, with 51.09% during a triangular.
In another triangular, in Amiens, the centrist Brigitte Fouré supported by LREM also resumes service with 45.79%, before the union candidate of the left Julien Pradat (35.95%).
Football referee Antony Gautier was elected mayor of Bailleul, a municipality of 15,000 inhabitants in the North. Arbitrator in L1 since July 2007 and international referee from 2009 to 2018, he was assistant delegate for sports policy for Martine Aubry since 2014, in Lille. Aged 42, married and father of three, he won Sunday with 50.3% of the vote, also in a triangular.
The RN strengthens its presence
In Pas-de-Calais, the RN slightly strengthened its presence by conquering Bruay-la-Buissière. After missing its first round meeting in several cities in its stronghold in the former mining basin (Lens, Liévin, Denain), Marine Le Pen’s party can this time boast of a good catch in this sector .
At 26, the young deputy and regional councilor Ludovic Pajot will become mayor of Bruay-la-Buissière (22,000 inhabitants). Faced with a left which had launched out into battle in dispersed order, the RN finished with 52% of the vote.
After Hénin-Beaumont, where Steeve Briois, elected since 2014, had been triumphantly renewed on March 15 (74.3%), the RN hoped for a treble in this region. But Marles-les-Mines (5,600 inhabitants) remains on the left (47.37%), despite its disunity, while the RN (45.13%) had benefited from the rallying of an apolitical list having collected 14.4% in first round.
