Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
8/8 for PS, including inner Toulouse (whose mayor is currently right wing).

In addition to the Grand Chelem in Toulouse, it seems the left won a majority of votes in every other major city except Marseille, and possibly Lyon. The PS seems to stand a good chance to begin its "refondation" next year in the muncipales.

It looks like the Left has half the deputies in Lyon, and melanchthon was saying that Perben was too unpopular to win the election. OTOH, the left is still a minority in Paris, when counting the popular vote.

Finally, both in Lyon and Paris, the Modem can have a strange effect on the municipals. Cavada was saying on TV  that the party will have to decide which side it is on...
