Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In addition to Greboble where Eric Piolle was reelected, EELV candidates won several big cities:
Lyon, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Poitiers, Besançon and Annecy.

In Lille, EELV was facing the PS Martine Aubry, former government minister and daughter of Jacques Delors. The two parties didn't managed to get a common list of candidates. Ultimately, results (not final) put Aubry ahead with a razor thin margin, which is enough for her to keep her mayoral seat.

In Paris, EELV headed by David Belliard merged their list with outgoing mayor Anne Hidalgo (PS). The combined list won 49% of the vote which will ensure an absolute majority of seats to the PS-EELV coalition, and Hidalgo will remain in the city hall for another six years.
