Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
in the short term. But I will post an update on Sunday night, after the decentralized AGM. There, in a characteristically complicated (but scrupulously democratic) manner, we will vote to elect our region's  delegates to the party's Congress (which is to be held 3rd to 5th June in La Rochelle), and also elect delegates to the party's parliament.

To elect our delegates, we vote for lists attached to the four motions in presence (proportional representation, of course). Our motion is up against that of the current politburo (Cécile Duflot and acolytes), and two others.

In addition, we elect our quota of delegates to the governing body of the Party; these will be elected on lists which are not necessarily attached to motions. These lists are generally constituted in an ad hoc manner on Sunday morning; there will definitely be one which refers explicitly to our motion.

Our region (Rhone Alpes) is generally fairly representative of what's happening nationally, so we should have some indication of how it shakes out by Sunday night. However, the final balance of power will not be known until the Congress, which elects the Bureau, on lists based on the four motions (which may merge in view of forming a majority)...

Well, that was tedious. I hope to have more interesting things to report on Sunday.
