In the Var, the mayor of the small village has decided to involve the 2,000 inhabitants of Saint-Anastasie-sur-Issole to decide which presidential candidate he will sponsor.
Olivier Hofmann was elected without a label and also wanted to raise awareness among the inhabitants of the village.
They will therefore have been called to the polls twice in a few months because they will choose between the declared candidates and those who will probably declare themselves, starting next week.
The mayor has thus planned a ballot on January 29 and February 7.
However, for this result to count, the mayor has set a participation threshold at a quarter of the municipality’s voters.
And if this is not obtained, the signature of the mayor (and therefore the sponsorship) will not go to any candidate.
