Municipalities who question local democracy

There will be a before and after this 2020 vintage of the municipal. This poll organized under exceptional conditions due to the health crisis will leave traces on local democracy, already worked for years by institutional changes and the evolution of the relationship of citizens to politics. From the evening of the first round, a figure summarized the situation: 55.34% abstention. More than one in two voters did not come on March 15 to elect their future mayor.

In the second round, participation could drop further. The Interior Ministry reports a midday turnout of 15.29%, three points below what it was at the same time on March 15 (18.38%).

The impact of the health crisis and the first containment announcements on March 14 (notably with the closure of restaurants), on the eve of the election, is beyond doubt. Abstention was then clearly higher in the main region affected by the epidemic, the Great East, where it reached almost 74% in Mulhouse and even crossed the 80% mark in ten cities! But this democratic accident comes against a backdrop of a constantly declining participation.

“Even if the municipal elections remain with the presidential elections where the French vote the most”, recalls Frédéric Dabi, Deputy Director General of Ifop. Thus, the abstention rate went from 21.6% in the first round of municipal elections in 1983 to 30.6% in 1995 then to 36.4% in the last municipal elections in 2014.

64% abstention in cities of 100,000 inhabitants

Opinion polls regularly show that mayors are the public officials to whom the French trust the most. Nevertheless, the democratic crisis did not spare the local executives. However, the situation is not the same depending on whether it is a village or a metropolis. A detailed analysis of the results of the first round indicates that this abstention is proportional to the size of the cities.

Thus, on March 15, it was 36% in municipalities with less than 1,000 inhabitants, it crossed the 60% mark for those with 20,000 to 30,000 inhabitants and peaked at 64% in the large agglomerations of more than 100,000 inhabitants. This difference in participation according to the size of the cities is a specificity of the municipal ballot. “The difference in participation between small and large cities was for example only 5 points in the last legislative elections”, underlines Frédéric Dabi.

For many specialists, the reasons for this disaffection are to be sought in particular with regard to the institutional developments of recent decades. The development of groupings of municipalities has helped transform the function of the local elected representative. “He appears less as the representative of a population than as an actor of public policies”, sums up political scientist Rémy Le Saout.

Proximity and attachment to the mayor remain strong, however, in the villages. In spite of the surveys which regularly alert on the blues of the local elected officials, they are numerous each time to represent themselves before the voters. “This idea of ​​the vocations crisis is more a story than a reality”, puts the political scientist into perspective.

The question of the legitimacy of elected officials

Democratic unrest concerns more the larger cities. According to Rémy le Saout, it is at the level of cities of 5,000 to 8,000 inhabitants that the rupture occurs and that the effect of technocracy is felt on the relationship between the elected official and his constituents. “Many mayors have made good use of the tool represented by intermunicipal organizations. It is a real political lever that allows skills to be raised, but it is also very time-consuming. “ While for several decades, the state services, like the treasuries, have withdrawn from the field, the intermunicipalities have taken over, transforming their elected representatives into real professionals of politics.

→ THE FACTS. Municipal 2020: a second round marked by the abstention and the shadow of the Covid-19

In this context, where the institutional link seems inexorably to fade between the inhabitants of the cities and their representatives, this spoiled edition of the municipalities falls very badly. Some mayors were re-elected in the first round but with an extremely weak base of votes. This is the case for example of the Minister of Public Accounts Gérald Darmanin, who wins hands down in his northern stronghold of Tourcoing with more than 60% of the votes. But the participation having been only 25%, the mayor was in fact chosen only by 15% of the registered members. Others are even less well elected like the mayor of Annemasse elected by 13% of the voters of his commune of Haute-Savoie.

This unprecedented situation inevitably raises the question of the legitimacy of elected officials. In its opinion delivered on June 17, the Constitutional Council recalled that with regard to the constitution, the principle of “sincerity” of the ballot was not appreciated according to a normative threshold of participation. However, he recalled that in the event of an appeal, it would be up to the administrative judge to assess on a case-by-case basis. “Whether the level of abstention may or may not have affected (…) the fairness of the ballot”.

Without going as far as contentious ground, the contestation of mayors risks being stirred up by a paradox that political scientist Luc Rouban emphasizes. The movement of yellow vests and the large number of citizen lists during this election are indicative of a form of “ reconquest of the local by the citizens “. However, the high abstention linked to the epidemic has reinforced the outgoing bonus, which is a classic of the municipal election: “Fear provokes a conservative reflex. As we saw in the first round, 50% of the outgoing mayors LR and 41% of the PS were re-elected. There is therefore a risk of tension between this return of the notables and this request for citizen expression. “

A reappropriation of the town by the inhabitants

To bridge the gap which tends to widen between the political institutions and the inhabitants, much has been attempted in recent years in terms of consultations or even participatory budgets. But for Luc Rouban, the impact of these tools, which are often a gadget, is marginal. However, he insisted on a new act of decentralization which would simplify the administrative yoke.

Rémy Le Saout also observes the emergence of new forms of mobilization on the fringes of traditional forms of politics. “Mayors who dedicate themselves to their city often feel sorry for saying that people no longer want to get involved. But it is futile to want to change them. The challenge today, to reweave the social bond, would be to really listen to people. Otherwise it gives anger like at the time of the yellow vests. ” Other forms of commitment are invented, which advocate a re-appropriation of the commune by the inhabitants, as we see by multiple initiatives such as shared gardens. Elected officials to know how to support these new sociabilities.

Luc Rouban insists for his part on what the epidemic episode but also the environmental crisis cause. “The urban productivist model has taken a hit. I believe that the time of entrepreneurs mayors, that of builders of industrial zones, is over, The mayor of tomorrow will be that of good living ”, predicts the political scientist.

Saakashvili said the absence of a state in Ukraine :: Politics :: RBC

The Ukrainian state was supplanted by local officials. This was stated by the head of the executive committee of the national Reform Council, ex-governor of the Odessa region, Mikhail Saakashvili, reports “Ukraine 24”.

“There is no state in Ukraine. There are officials in Ukraine who (act) in the name of a non-existent state, ”he said.

According to Saakashvili, the state is “that which is for all, which provides justice for all, which protects everyone.”

In Ukraine, according to the politician, there is no such state. There exists a “bunch of officials”, each of whom also has a boss.

Earlier, Saakashvili called Russia’s advantages over Ukraine. In his opinion, Russia is ahead of Ukraine in matters of taxation efficiency, deregulation of the economy and interaction with business.

Director Alexei Uchitel – about the new nudity of Christina Asmus: “I was amazed!”

Each has its own isolation. Someone got stuck in Bali, someone climbed away into the wilderness, someone does not leave the city apartment. And here Director Alexey Uchitel (“Walk”, “Land”, “Diary of his wife”) is completing work on a new painting – “47”, dedicated to the journey of Victor’s tomb Tsoi to the northern capital after deadly Accident in 1990.

In a conversation with the writer Alexander Tsypkin, based on the works of which the series is already being shot, the director remembered how he convinced Tsoi to star in his film and why

ABOUT THIS

“When we shot“ Rock ”in 1986, none of that company knew me – neither Grebenshchikov nor Garkusha. Who knows who I am? The KGB or something else. AND [чтобы наладить контакт] I chose the most silent – Tsoi. And he said: “Listen, Victor, let me come with an operator, a camera to your boiler room, and we will sit with you for a shift – and he was on duty for two days – and we’ll shoot. Not a single question, I swear, I will. As it is, it is. Then you come – take a look. If you don’t like it, we’ll disperse. ” And these were the first frames of the stoker, which now often show. I saw a lot of things: different people came and drank, but I honestly restrained myself – I didn’t move anything, I didn’t say “come here”. Perhaps that’s why it turned out to make a film. And then they came to my native Leningrad documentary studio in the director’s room with the whole Kino group – they watched in silence, went out in silence. I think: Christmas trees, sticks, what is there? I say: “Vit, tell me! Did you like it or not? ” And in response there was one word: “Normal.” This word gave me a sharp pass to life. After that, no one asked who I am and what they eat me with. ”

Frame from the movie “Rock”

PRO NEW FILM

“When a terrible accident occurred (Viktor Tsoi crashed on August 15, 1990 after the collision of his Moskvich in the oncoming lane with the Ikarus bus, which was driven by Janis Fibigs, on the highway SlokaTalsi – Aut.) From material that was not included in the Rock, we mounted the picture “The Last Hero”, then I met the driver of Ikarus, who was driving, and spoke with the investigator. Then it settled down with me. When you go and don’t know who Tsoi is … and then life changes abruptly (the driver was found not guilty, but nevertheless became known throughout the USSR – Aut.). The story of our picture “47” begins with an accident, and then begins the journey of the bus with Tsoi’s coffin in Petersburg. A kind of roadflies. The one who is driving does not know who all these people close to Choi are (Ricochet performed by Ilya Del, wife Natalya Reasons performed by Paulina Andreeva etc.), but they don’t know what kind of driver it is.

About 7-8 years ago, Sasha Gonorovsky (“The Land”, “From Five to Seven”) wrote the script, but we did not shoot. I thought that it was irrelevant, but interest in Tsoi is growing more and more every year. This is a mystery that no one will solve. With all due respect and Vysotskyand to Okudzhavaaccording to how often they sing, Choi overtook them. ”

In December, I starred in the full-length film Whaling. This is not horror)))), this is drama. I played the girl from the video chat Uuuf))) But I hasten to upset you, there were no naughty scenes. It’s even straight offensive. But there was my longest double in my career, which lasted 43 minutes. Studio: @ rockfilms.ru Production: Russia, Poland Gen. producer: Aleksey Uchitel Director and screenwriter: Philipp Yuryev Camera-man: Mikhail Khursevich, Yakov Mironchev Which image from the movie do you like more?

ABOUT ASMUS

“At our Rock studio, we also shoot full-length debuts. One of my students Philip Yuriev seven years he wrote the script for the painting “Whalers”, which he then shot in Kamchatka. A stunning story will soon be shown at one of the major festivals, if it takes place. So, according to the plot, whalers are watching a computer showing a undressing girl [из секс-чата]. And this heroine was supposed to play Christina Asmus. She read the script, she liked it, agreed. Then the film “Text” comes out, this whole story takes place (after naked scenes with Ivan Yankovsky the actress’s husband, Harik Kharlamov, was sucked as a cuckold, in the end couple gets divorced and assures that the cinema has nothing to do with it – Auth.). And then an agent calls me and explains that Christina can’t act in our scene. I begged them to come to the studio, Asmus apologized for a long time that it would not work. Hoping for nothing, I turned on her 10 minutes of the film, she looked and said: “That’s it. Let’s. When to shoot? ” I asked again: “Are you not afraid that they will start rinsing again?” “This is my business,” she said firmly and starred wonderfully. I was amazed! ”
