In the Côtes-d’Armor, the union of the left has just closed the parenthesis on the right. The department, historically on the left, had shifted in 2015.
Six years later, the outgoing majority has fallen. A large defeat symbolized by that recorded by Alain Cadec, the former president of the department today senator, in the canton of Plérin. Or by that of centrist Yves-Jean Le Coqû, in Plélo, elected since 1995.
On the other hand, Romain Boutron, outgoing president of the departmental council, was widely elected in the canton of Loudéac. “We had a specific project, more than that of the union of the left, but it did not mobilize,” he commented.
Despite a strong abstention, the left took advantage of the momentum of the first round. Thus, she fell into his purse Trégueux or Pléneuf-Val-André, anchored to the right. Christian Coail (opposite), elected with Béatrice Le Couster on the canton of Callac, will probably be the next president of the departmental council of Côtes-d’Armor.
