The opposition municipal council expresses its outrage at the local support for Eric Giraudier, who was « removed from office due to irregularities. »
From October 11th to 24th, businesses in Gard are invited to vote in the new election for the Services college of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI). Eric Giraudier, who lost his position as president following the partial annulment of the CCI elections in June by the administrative court of appeal in Toulouse, is campaigning (he was in Bagnols last Tuesday). This has angered Jérôme Jackel, an opposition municipal councilor in Bagnols. « Is loyalty to the local finished? » he ironically questions. We can observe the president of Grisbi, Mr. Soubeiran, and the president of the Gard Rhodanien Agglomeration, Mr. Rey, actively supporting the deposed president Giraudier for electoral irregularities. Meanwhile, the Gard Rhodanien territory is economically suffering, particularly its capital […]. I cannot help but question these local supports for Mr. Giraudier. Twice, in first and second instances, the administrative court and the administrative court of Toulouse ruled in favor of the irregularities. Additionally, Mr. Giraudier was convicted of abusive procedure towards ten former elected officials. »
Jérôme Jackel indique apporter son soutien au Bagnolais Philippe Broche, chef de file de la liste Cœur gardois, « qui a la possibilité de l’emporter. J’apporte mon soutien au local avec M. Broche et j’encourage les professionnels à le propulser à la tête de la CCI pour un nouveau souffle qui profitera au soutien de l’économie du territoire ».
