At the microphone of Europe 1 Saturday, François Patriat, the president of the LREM group in the Senate, revisited the government's decision to organize the second round of the municipal elections on June 28. He "questions the sincerity of the ballot", saying that the risk of a "breach of equality between the candidates" is real. 


It will be June 28. Edouard Philippe announced Friday in Matignon that the second round of municipal elections, initially scheduled for March 22 and postponed due to the confinement, would be held on the last Sunday of June. A date that may still change depending on the evolution of the health situation, said the Prime Minister. Invited to the morning of Europe 1 Saturday, the president of the LREM group in the Senate François Patriat criticized this choice to organize the poll on June 28.
