La Roche sur Foron Municipal Elections 2014Posters & Analyst

It appears that incumbent mayor - Michel Thabuis days are numbered. Thabuis came in second in the first round (see full results) at 37.5% . Over 7% behind leader Guy Flammier and 6% less than Thabuis received in 2008. 2008 was a four way race as apposed to three way in 2014, making Thabuis' poor score even more profound. Thabuis hasn't given up the fight, stating that the other two lists are partisan, unlike his that is not affiliated with any political party.

The second round will be a repeat of the first with all three list staying in the race. As the first round's 'third man' Jean-Claude Georget is still running. Georget really doesn't have anything to gain by dropping out or merging with another list. His leftist list did much better than in 2008, an improvement of 6% and he's probably preparing for future elections.

Flammier for his part is staying on message and keeping up the heat on Thabuis, in a race that looks to be Flammier's to lose.

There won't be a debate between rounds but each candidate will have a rally. Social media is also sure to be active. In fact Thabuis took to facebook to point out that someone just before the first round bought at one newsstand in La Roche, all the editions of a local paper that had an in-depth story about him. As everyone loves a winner Flammier picked up over 10 likes on his facebook page, making his page more popular than Thabuis'. Who had been more popular on facebook.
