Gérard Larcher (LR), 68, was widely re-elected on Monday for a three-year (non-consecutive) three-year Senate presidency, where he intends to play a “demanding counter-power” role, the political recomposition.

This veteran policy, which was reinforced by the senatorial elections of 24 September, won 223 votes in the first round of voting, against 79 to the president of the socialist group Didier Guillaume and 15 to the president of the communist group Éliane Assassi. There were 24 white ballots and two ballots.
