Vincent Peillon, Royal's first supporter, has said that Aubry's lead was down to 4 votes after the first day of meeting of the "commission de récolement" (a sort of recount committee).

To be continued...

But, tonight, the national committee is said to give the name, after a last meeting of the "commission de récolement".

Royal will probably refuse to agree on a decision that she will regard as a biased one by a current leadership and internal committees which are controlled by "hollandais", "delanoistes", "strauss-kahniens" or "fabiusiens" who support Aubry.

"Ségolène vs the old establishment", chapter 118, part 725...

A good comparison for the PS in the next months may be Lopez Obrador's behaviour after narrow Calderon's victory.

The commission announced its final results: Aubry 67 451 (50.04%), Royal 67 349 (49.96%)—that's a margin of 102 votes for Aubry. The party's national council validated these results by a vote of 159 to 76, with two abstentions.

David Assouline called for a revote even after the results were announced, as did Vincent Peillon, who said that it was the condition sine qua non for the Royal supporters to rally behind Aubry. After Aubry reached out to Royal, Jean-Louis Bianco announced that the Royal campaign would be seeking legal action against the PS.


Edit: Royal has called for unity and seems to have conceded, but many of her supporters are still contesting the results. Valls and Bianco are still threatening to seek legal action against the PS if it denies them a revote.

Royal lets her closest aides lead the bitter and practical fight and she tries to remain above... Lol !

We'll see if and how Aubry is able to form the Politburo of the Socialist party ("bureau national"). First issue on her road...

Eventually, Dominique Strauss-Kahn may be the real winner and it might be wondered whether he foresaw all of this and so pushed Cambadélis to ease the mess...
