Election of the first secretary of the PS: who supports whom in Brittany?
1 Who can Olivier Faure count on?
In Brittany, Olivier Faure received the support of Nathalie Appéré, mayor of Rennes, Isabelle Assih, mayor of Quimper, and Jean-Paul Vermot, mayor of Morlaix. We also know that Johanna Rolland, mayor of Nantes, will be number two if the outgoing first secretary is reappointed.
Among the signatories of Olivier Faure’s contribution, we also find the senator of Ille-et-Vilaine Sylvie Robert, as well as the three Breton socialist deputies, Mélanie Thomin (6th constituency of Finistère), Claudia Rouaux (3rd constituency of Ille-et-Vilaine) and Mickaël Bouloux (8th district of Ille-et-Vilaine), who owe their election or re-election to the Nupes, this agreement signed by the forces of the left during the last legislative elections.
Former minister Marylise Lebranchu also announced her vote in favor of the outgoing first secretary.
Good congress PS, I vote Motion Faure and I dream of a soothing congress, without giving lessons with the modesty of those who work for the French who row, who no longer find public services, who are poorly paid, have small retire and no longer believe in us

2 Who can Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol count on?
Withdrawn from the Socialist Party since last spring, the president of the Brittany region, Loïg Chesnais-Girard, did not comment on the election of the first secretary. On the other hand, we find several figures of the regional majority among Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol’s supporters, including Michaël Quernez, mayor of Quimperlé and vice-president of the regional council, in charge of climate and mobility, and Fanny Chappé, mayor of Paimpol and President of the Social Democratic Group in the Brittany region.
Among the signatories of the contribution of the mayor of Rouen, we also find Annie Le Houérou, senator of Côtes-d’Armor, Sébastien Miossec, mayor of Riec-sur-Belon and president of Quimperlé community, or Gilbert Le Bris, former deputy de Concarneau, and Claudy Lebreton, former president of the Côtes-d’Armor departmental council.
3 They supported Hélène Geoffroy
To win, Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol is counting on the supporters of the anti-Nupes candidate Hélène Geoffroy, who came third in the first round. In Brittany, the latter had received the support of several figures, such as the mayor of Brest, François Cuillandre, the mayor of Lannion, Paul Le Bihan, and the senator of Finistère Jean-Luc Fichet. The contribution of the mayor of Vaulx-en-Velin had also been signed by several socialists who had presented themselves as dissidents in the last legislative elections, including the Brestois Réza Salami and the Costarmorican Vincent Le Meaux. The latter made no secret of his choice, calling this Saturday on social networks to beat Olivier Faure.
