Louis Aliot, the new mayor Rassemblement national (RN) de Perpignan, was unable to obtain, on Saturday July 11, the presidency of the Perpignan Méditerranée Métropole (PMM) urban community, defeated by an alliance of rights. This was a major issue for the 36 small municipalities and its city center, Perpignan, which alone accounts for 46% of the population of the metropolis. The deputy, candidate for the 15 vice-presidencies, even had to settle for a modest fifth vice-presidency. “The meetings before the election clearly demonstrated that there was a desire to dismiss the elected officials of Perpignan, said Louis Aliot bitterly. Voters will judge, these elections are only one stage. “

They were three candidates in the running: Louis Aliot therefore, strong in his election with 53.09% in the municipal elections against the former mayor of the city, Jean-Marc Pujol – who was also the president of PMM -; Robert Vila (Les Républicains), the mayor of the small town of Saint-Estève, and Alain Ferrand, the mayor (various right) of Barcarès, the second town in the agglomeration.

A character, this Alain Ferrand. Convicted three times for misuse of corporate assets, illegal taking of interests and tax evasion, he shared the town hall since 1995 with his wife, each time he was declared ineligible (or when she was in his turn). They are nicknamed in the region “the southern Balkany”. The man, friendly and round, is in business, especially casinos and games in Africa, in the sulfurous Pefaco group (the “fa” is for Ferrand Alain), and was comfortably re-elected on March 15 in the first round at Barcarès.

“Ego quarrels”

The atmosphere at the PPM was fresh. The PS president of the region, Carole Delga, had the day before declare wanting “A president who defends the values ​​of the Republic and not the camp of the far right” and denounced “The quarrels of ego, little roosters, irresponsible attitudes that are legion in the Pyrénées-Orientales”. Louis Aliot ruled on Saturday that she had “Insulted the voters” and declared himself “Shocked by certain remarks which aim to exclude the city-center from the agglomeration”.

On the first ballot, Louis Aliot obtained 30 votes, Alain Ferrand 18, Robert Vila 38 – the absolute majority was 45. After two sitting breaks, Alain Ferrand retired with a few kind words for Louis Aliot (“The party framework must remain in the locker room, we must demonstrate that we can work together”), and indicated that it “Would accept to be first vice-president”. The mayor of Perpignan understood that he had lost to the Vila-Ferrand alliance. Robert Vila actually won by 49 votes in the second round – Louis Aliot obtained 33. Alain Ferrand, delighted, actually obtained the first vice-presidency for services rendered, and Robert Vila for each of the other positions systematically presented candidates to push Louis Aliot into the depths of the rankings.

The mayor of Perpignan still has a reason for satisfaction: a week after his election, he voted Friday 10 July by his city council to increase his compensation by 17%.
