Patrick Devedjian wins in French parliamentary elections
Patrick Devedjian, the president of the Hauts-de-Seine, won the second round of parliamentary elections in the 13th district of the department Sunday. With 60.03% of the vote, he beat his challenger, Julien Landfried (39.97%).
In June, young candidate Landfrid, supported by the Socialist Party and various forces of the left wing, almost made the feat, losing just 191 votes to Devedjian.
After the cancellation of the election of Patrick Devedjian by Constitutional Council, Julien Landfrid believed that he could win. But these elections made the final point – Patrick Devedjian, an MP from the district continuously since 1988, retained his office.
