This was expected: the vote on tripling the price of parking in Paris for certain cars, particularly SUVs, was extremely expensive. The price per voter ratio is even more disturbing. The figures have just been confirmed by Emmanuel Grégoire, first deputy mayor of the city.
This vote, held on Sunday February 4, cost no less than 400,000 euros. The system was in fact intended to collect the opinions of more than 1.3 million people registered on the electoral lists. However, only 78,121 people came, with only 42,000 voting for this measure.
In total, each vote therefore cost a little more than five euros. Just that. All this while proxies were not possible, because “extremely expensive”according to the first deputy of the capital’s town hall.
Emmanuel Grégoire welcomes a “significant” number of voters
The participation rate actually amounted to… 5.68%. Does that not seem like much to you? Not for Emmanuel Grégoire, naturally. Questioned on the sidelines of the Paris council, which opened today, the latter said “delighted to have had 78,000 voters. It’s extremely important” !
The fact remains that the 400,000 euros will undoubtedly be quickly replenished by the new parking rates for cars deemed too heavy by the municipality. Prices for motorists will be tripled, which will undoubtedly add to the city’s coffers.
Remember that this should be implemented as of September 1st. Anne Hidalgo announced, at the end of the vote, that a deliberation will be presented in May.
