The chairman of the Les Républicains party, Christian Jacob, was delighted that his party had "returned to victory" during the municipal elections, this Sunday evening after the second round. He claimed victory for his party in "more than half of the cities with more than 9,000 inhabitants", after the "failures in the presidential and legislative elections". "This is a good omen for the senatorial, but also departmental and regional elections to come," he said on the set of France 2.
