It’s official, the Association of Mayors of France has its new president: David Lisnard, LR mayor of Cannes, was elected Wednesday at the head of the influential association, succeeding François Baroin, who chaired it for seven years.
David Lisnard won 62% of the vote, against 38% for his competitor Philippe Laurent, UDI mayor of Sceaux. Current vice-president and spokesperson for the AMF, supported by Les Républicains et les Socialistes, Mr. Lisnard obtained 6,913 votes out of 11,577 cast by the more than 34,000 members of the association, said the Electoral Commission during the 103rd congress of mayors held in Paris.
The election of the mayor of Cannes is a continuation of the last years of François Baroin, with an AMF which wishes at all costs to keep its independence vis-à-vis the Elysée. The Association of Mayors of France and the presidency have also increased friction since the election of Emmanuel Macron.
