There was no suspense in Cortaillod. Wednesday evening during the election of the Municipal Council by the General Council, the left won the majority from the right within the executive. From the first round of voting, the two socialist candidates Anneline Straubhaar and Sarah Collioud, as well as the ecologist Olivier Rochat were elected with 23 votes, the absolute majority being set at 21. A convincing success which delights the president of the quiver section of the socialist party Odile Duvoisin. “I think that the population of Cortaillod was also fed up with the majority of the PLR. She showed it at the polls and with two socialist women and a man we respect the popular will,” she trumpets.

This success of the left was made possible by the compact vote of the 23 socialist, green and liberal green deputies, who allied themselves with the ecologists. During the first round, the two outgoing PLR Olivier Félix and Christian Haenseler, as well as their running mate Michel Robyr only collected the 18 liberal-radical votes in the legislature.

Grimace soup for the PLR

Wednesday evening was complicated for the right-wing party. After losing its absolute majority in the General Council on April 21, the PLR ​​lost its majority in the Quiver Municipal Council even though it had put all its strength into the battle. During the second round of voting, outgoing Olivier Félix, with 41 votes, and Christian Haenseler, with 38 votes, were elected. They finished far ahead of Michel Robyr and his 14 votes. A result which disappoints and challenges Michel Billant, president of the PLR ​​section of Cortaillod. “We were a little surprised to see the PVL getting closer to the Greens and the PS. Now even if the liberal Greens had joined us, we would have been in the minority,” he admits. /dpi
