Indeed, an anonymous leaflet was distributed and in it the former mayor is accused of having created, via a 2017 deliberation, a ” local trade safeguard perimeter ” and “A municipal right of preemption” to help his son open a bakery in the city center, rue Jean-Jaurès.
It is therefore in a leaflet, in response, that the former mayor decided to clarify things and explain how his son was able to acquire this business. The reward is always to be won.
This is the candidate Sergio Coronado (LFI) who denounces via a video, which he took at Bondy (Seine-Saint-Denis), the tearing of his campaign posters. He explains that they are “members of the team of the candidate PS” who give themselves to these practices in town.
It is not allowed to tear up the posters of the candidates on the official panels of the municipality.
“No monkey at the town hall”, this is precisely what was written on the posters of the candidate for mayor of Bobigny.
For the candidate, “The limits are exceeded”. He knew that the campaign was going to be difficult, “but from not respecting this right to freedom of expression recognized to all, I wonder if the teams which tear down only our posters have the height of spirit necessary to claim to lead. a big city like Bobigny ”.
