Epeigné-les-Bois: Nouveau Conseil – Christian Percevault elu Maire

The new Conseil d'Epeigné-les-Bois

Christian Percevault: Maire d'Epeigné-les-Bois

Le nouveau Conseil Municipal: Christian Percevault – the new Maire, Michel Mergot (the previous Maire) – 1er Maire Adjoint, Pierre Tourlier – 2ème Maire Adjoint et Philippe Gallet – 3ème Maire Adjoint  

Following their election last Sunday (23rd March 2014) on the first round of voting the new Conseil (11 members) met for the first time this morning in the Mairie d'Epeigné-les-Bois.

The meeting started with the election of the new Maire and the three Maires Adjoints – the maximum allowed for a small commune like Epeigné (424 inhabitants - 2009).

There were two candidates:Christian Percevault and Philippe Gallet. Christian Percevault was elected on the first ballot with 8 votes to 3 for Philippe Gallet.

Secret ballot as votes are placed in a fireman's helmet

Philippe misunderstands the instructions 
thinking he has to put his head in the helmet not his vote! 

The three Maire-Adjoints were unopposed with Michel Mergot and Pierre Tourlier receiving 11 votes each, while Philippe Gallet had 10 votes with one abstention. Although there are four women on the new Conseil sadly none of them stood for one of these posts.  

Michel Mergot: 1st Deputy Mayor  

Pierre Tourlier: 2nd Deputy Mayor

Philippe Gallet: 3rd Deputy Mayor
