in Lyon, the home Collomb in danger

Even before the second round of the municipal elections in lyon, the name of the defeated is known. To the helm of the city since 2001, Gérard Collomb, 73 years of age, will not be the first elected president of the metropolis of Lyon, the crown hoped for a long career in politics.

It was without counting on the power of the “green wave “. Arrived in the lead in eight districts out of nine, and the environmentalists and their new allies the socialists and dissenters are likely to delight the city. And they will defend their project to the scale of the metropolis of 1.4 million people, where the lists supporting Gérard Collomb arrived to a very disappointing fourth position.

The alliance right

Unable to find a common ground with David Kimelfeld, his runner-up party in solitaire, Gérard Collomb, has turned on its right to maintain its influence. On the 28th of may last, he withdrew from the race for the presidency of the metropolitan area, rubbing in front of the candidate of the Republicans (LR), François-Noël Buffet. In return, the candidate LR to the city hall of Lyon, Stephen White, has done the same for the benefit of the protégé of Gérard Collomb, the former gymnast Yann Cucherat, 40 years.

Pact faustian or relay switch faithful to the tradition of lyon ? “It is a choice that I do not understand, reacts Julien Ranc, the head of the list in the west riding, who has left Gerard Collomb for David Kimelfeld in the second round. There is a dimension freudian at work. The father refuses to be killed by the son. “ Like him, many elected officials stayed up until then, the faithful have refused to endorse the alliance with LR, which was decided in head-to-head with the president (LR) of the region Rhône-Alpes, Laurent Wauquiez, the enemy yesterday. “It is not possible to campaign with candidates who have agreed, in 1998, the votes of the national Front to hold on to the head of the region “, continues Julien Ranc, in reference to Stephen White.

Against the ” bloc of the extreme left “

The outgoing mayor deems itself to be the continuation. In 2001, he recalls, his predecessor, the centrist Raymond Barre, had not campaigned against the socialist opposition as he was then. Especially, pounds-t-he from the alliance to the right would be the only way to take it on the “bloc of the extreme left” that ambitionnerait of the ” undo “button what he has put “twenty years to build “. The terminology is the same from one side to the other. The two sides believe that the election boils down to the confrontation of two “blocks “ antagonists, and promise “the revelation “ in case of victory of the opponent.

The decision-decline of Gérard Collomb had been sown since his appointment to the ministry of the interior. Party boss undisputed the second city of France, he returned in October 2018, weakened by his departure churned up by the government, in a city that does the waiting. The men who have replaced him have tasted the power. And its image is damaged place Beauvau. Doubting still have the necessary majority, Gérard Collomb had then renounced to take over the chairmanship of the metropolis, abandoning him to David Kimelfeld.

Battle of the heads, and rout of the first round

The venom of the division was instilled. The battle of the chefs that followed resulted in the defeat of the first round, and the alliance to the right. Result : after to have withdrawn his nomination to Gérard Collomb, and to have refused to David Kimelfeld, The Republic in market (LREM) has no candidate in the second agglomeration of France. This is another defeat for Gérard Collomb, who was personally invested to bring the nomination of Emmanuel Macron to the presidency of the Republic.

So far, his opponents as his political friends are wary. Model of the’ hypermaire ” deciding everything, Gérard Collomb is still struggling to wear the costume number two, campaigning in tandem with François-Noël Buffet. The “third round” in which the elected metropolitan shall appoint their president might have some surprises in store.

While the year has been disrupted both by the popular protests ongoing in Lebanon since October 17, and the pandemic of sars coronavirus-which has forced the closure of schools since the end of February, the pessimism is warranted. “We don’t know if we will be able to reopen in the fall “says, death in the soul, sister Afaf Abou Samra, director general of fee-paying schools of the congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Hearts, which manages 30 facilities and pay semi-free, welcoming a total of 29 000 students. “Will we be able to continue to manage these schools with this crisis ? The coffers are empty “, “she says. The congregation has already had to close one antenna semi-free-Choueir in Metn.

“We operate for five years without State subsidies, the parents of the region are not wealthy, they can no longer pay the tuition.

On the side of the schools semi-free, the situation is even more alarming, since the faculty has not received salary for three to four months.

“An existential crisis “

The origin of the problem, the non-payment by the State, for 2015-2016, grants allocated to schools semi-free, created by the religious orders and congregations in the 1950s at the request of the president of the Republic Camille Chamoun. “The increase in teachers’ salaries in the private imposed by the State for 2017 has increased the budget of the schools, while the economic crisis has completed the disaster “said the father, Azar.

On the grid, the director, Delphine Lebrun, made the count: of the 400 pupils in the school group, only 41 came in elementary school and 13 in kindergarten, which is half as much as those who had announced themselves. “Some teachers have only two or three students, and one has none! “, she emphasizes

At CM2 recess, only three students look at each other in the whites of their eyes. ” It’s sad, huh? “, launches Gustave, determined to convince the others to return. In the opposite courtyard, a mistress animates a collective game. Laughter bursts out. The distance does not prevent having fun.

Coronavirus, 23% of travelers returning by car to North Naples are positive

twelve o’clockMay 4, 2020 – 5:25 pm

The sample checks carried out in the morning at the toll booth showed that 14 out of 60 people were positive for the rapid test. Now wait for the swab. But not all motorists can be stopped. No positive on trains

of F.N.

If the return from the North to Campania with the trains showed maximum safety and no risk of contagion, the real danger for the spread of Covid 19 represented by the mass exodus by car. Uncontrollable, unless you want to block the entire flow of vehicles that arrive at the Campania toll booths. And precisely from the sample checks on the highway, carried out by the police with rapid tests, worrying data emerged. At the Napoli Nord toll booth, as Tagad anticipated, the La7 broadcast conducted by Tiziana Panella, on the sample of 60 controlled travelers from Northern Italy, tested a positive result of just over 23%: 14 people. And even more worryingly, none of them were aware of having contracted the disease. Now we have to wait for the swab to understand if they have not been false positives. But still the alarming fact remains.

From the first train arriving in Naples from Milan, however, no infected travelers. Nobody had a temperature above 37.5 degrees and therefore no serological test was carried out – noted Olimpia Abbate, director of the Polfer compartment for Campania – we knew there would be an increase in travelers this morning but all got on or boarded the trains respecting the safety distance, following an order that will become a habit.
