Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm not that sure people understand how communautés de communes work all that well. And particularly, that during the campaign, the programs really point out what will happen among the communauté half as much as what will happen within the commune.

The small commune as a social relationship utility ; the scale of a few hundred to a few thousand people gives rise to a useful political entity, which should see its role in very local matters clearly delineated with those of the communauté. For example, this a proper scale at which to introduce direct and/or participative democracy. Quartier administration in larger Municipalities could have that role.

I can't see why each communaute de communes could not have a popularly-elected assembly.

You mean, apart from the politicians liking the whole "indirect democracy" thing that gives them more power, more important positions to share, more indemnities ?
