Politisation et scrutins municipaux. L'exemple du Maine-et-Loire sous la IVe République

Jean-Louis Ormières


Few studies are devoted in France to the local elections. The reason undoubtedly comes from alleged "the apolitical attitude" of these polls. The example of the Maine-and-Loire, a department with strong political contrasts, makes it possible to show that these consultations are more political than it was not known as.

Other teaching of this study: the narrow agreement enters the profession of the local councillors and the socio-economic mediums dominant.
