A little over a month after failing to overthrow Hubert Julien-Laferrière (NUPES) in the second round of the legislative elections in Lyon (51.64% against 48.36%), Loïc Terrenes is bouncing back professionally.
The former Renaissance candidate in the 2nd district of the Rhône announced that he had agreed to join the cabinet of Olivier Véran, Minister for Democratic Renewal and government spokesperson. He will hold the position of argumentative advisor.
“In the service of clear speech, fair words and more visible and more readable public action”he commented on his social networks about this mission which will consist of doing a lot of pedagogy so that the future measures of the government of Elisabeth Borne are understood and ideally accepted.
Loïc Terrenes and Olivier Véran are not their first collaboration. When the minister was deputy for Isère, he had been his parliamentary assistant between 2017 and 2019. The 26-year-old young man then went to the Métropole de Lyon to work with David Kimelfeld, in particular on the first deconfinement of Covid-19 .
At 26, has Loïc Terrenes already drawn a line under local politics? We remember that after his defeat in the June election, he launched the Confluences association to prepare for 2026. Will he succeed in juggling possible Lyon municipal ambitions and a full-time job in Paris?
