In one week, he practically doubled his score at Chartres. François Bonneau, socialist candidate in the regional elections in Center-Val de Loire, gathered this Sunday, June 27, during the second round of the ballot, 41.72% of the votes, or 3,147 votes.
It is more than the simple addition of his score of the first round and that of his ally, the ecologist Charles Fournier. Between the two rounds, François Bonneau and the EELV list had reached a merger agreement.
This strategy allowed François Bonneau to win in Chartres without trembling. Its three competitors are largely behind.

But this regional election remains, for the party of Marine Le Pen, a reason for great disappointment, since in December 2015, during the previous election, the FN candidate, Philippe Loiseau, had gathered in Chartres 21.2% of the votes.
The RN Chartrain score is much lower than in the rest of Eure-et-Loir, where it comes in second with a much higher percentage (26.67%).
