The new deputy of the NUPES René Pilato.

POLITICS – NUPES won a seat in Charente and the RN lost one to Renaissance in Marne after the second round of three partial legislative Sunday January 29.

The majority carries out a neutral operation for its part, since it loses the seat of Thomas Mesnier (Horizons) in the first constituency of Charente but won thanks to Laure Miller (Renaissance) the second district of the Marne.

These three elections had been provoked by invalidation decisions of the Constitutional Council.

In the 8th district of Pas-de-Calais (Saint-Omer and surroundings) Bertrand Petit – related to PS and invested by the NUPESafter having presented a dissenting candidacy in June – is the only one of the three outgoing candidates renewed, after having largely dominated, with 66.49% of the votes, the candidate RN Auguste Evrard, who collected 33.51% of the votes, in a second turn where only 27.93% of voters in the constituency went to vote.

In June, Bertrand Petit won with 55.82% of the vote, allowing the left to reconquer this former stronghold, in a department where six out of twelve constituencies had been won by the RN. His election had been invalidated because of the choice of his deputy, René Hocq, ineligible because he was already replacing a senator.

Laure Miller, who was however more than four points behind her opponent at the end of the first round, benefited from a good carryover of votes to win. The NUPES candidate Victorien Pâté, who came third in the first round, had called in particular not to give any voice to the RN.
