In France, municipal elections are held every six years. Town councillors are elected by direct universal suffrage for renewable terms of six years. Anyone residing in or paying taxes in the commune (municipal area) can apply for election, provided that he or she satisfies the following conditions: be a citizen of France or of a European Union member country, be of age, have full civil and political rights, be registered on the electoral roll.
The Limoges municipal elections, as in all communes (municipal areas) of more than 3,500 inhabitants, are based on a two-round party list system. In the first round, the party list which has received the absolute majority of votes is awarded half the number of available seats. If no list has received the absolute majority of votes, a second round is held. Half of the seats are then allocated to the list that has received the largest number of votes and the other seats are distributed between all of the other lists (including the majority list) on the basis of the highest average proportional representation. Lists that have not obtained at least 5% of the votes are not included in the distribution of seats, which are allocated to the candidates in their order of presentation on each list.
Since the municipal elections of March 2014, you have also elected your community councillors. The community councillors represent your municipality within the établissement public de coopération intercommunale – public establishment of inter-municipal cooperation (EPCI) at the tax office to which it belongs, i.e. your community of municipalities, agglomération community, new urban planning syndicate (SAN), urban or metropolitan community. The EPCI are groups of municipalities which carry out common development projects.
In accordance with the size of the commune (demographic category of 100,000 to 149,999 inhabitants), the number of councillors for the city of Limoges is set at 55.
A public meeting of the town council must be held no sooner than the Friday and no later than the Sunday after the ballot that led to its complete election.
Under the chairmanship of the oldest member of the town council, the Mayor is elected by secret ballot. The absolute majority is required.
The Mayor’s role consists of executing the decisions of the town council, preparing and proposing the commune’s budget to the town council and being responsible for the administration of the commune. He or she may delegate, by decree, some of his or her functions to one or more deputies or members of the town council (delegated councillors). The Mayor is a registrar of births, marriages and deaths and a law enforcement official. He or she has specific powers, including with regard to personnel employed by the commune and town planning (granting of planning permission). Under the authority of the representative of the French State in the département, the Mayor is empowered to perform functions pertaining to the administrative authorities (publication and execution of laws and regulations, execution of general security measures, special functions attributed by the legislation and the organisation of political or professional elections). He or she oversees the running of the municipal police force whose role is to enforce the orders issued by the Mayor, whereas the national police force is responsible for maintaining public security.
The deputies’ role is to perform the functions entrusted to them by the Mayor and they may be required to replace the Mayor in his or her absence (in the order of their nomination). They perform their duties in one or more specific area(s) corresponding to their skills and motivations: finance, housing, culture, environment, etc.
The Mayor and his or her deputies form the Municipal Executive.
