The second round of the municipal will he held on the 28 June ? If the scientific council does not oppose it formally, his opinion issued Monday evening, ” just eight days after the release of the containment “, is tinged with caution.
The council then refers back immediately to the executive his responsibilities, stressing that any deferral (or, conversely, the retention of the elections), part ” decisions which are the sole responsibility of public authorities “. It also takes care to clarify that its assessment ” is strictly limited to the health aspects “.
A campaign to high-risk
The health aspects, it is actually well discussed in this notice, which lays down a series of rules to be respected both before and during the elections. The scientific council is less anxious on the day of voting itself, ” who can benefit of health conditions secure “, as on the electoral campaign that precedes it.
The multiplication of risks is also the reason for which the scientific council is in favour of the only second round and not the organization of two rounds.
Too early to decide
Beyond these findings, the scientists called to the government to assist in the management of the health crisis, conclude that ” it is still too early to assess the level of circulation of Sars-Cov-2 during the month of June. The first estimates will not be probably available in a few weeks. This evaluation may then motivate according to its results a new interruption of the electoral process “.
The executive has, it seems, heard the message since the prime minister should request a new review in two weeks, according to France Info. At this time, there should also be a parliamentary debate and a vote on the organization of these municipal elections.
The second round concerns 4897 common and approximately 16.5 million voters.
