“On Sunday, March 17, Georges Marsan was re-elected Mayor for the fifth time in the Monaco municipal elections which were held at Espace Léo Ferré.” – reports

He was first elected Mayor in 2003. It was no great surprise and did not need a second ballot. After the counting, it was the re-elected Mayor Georges Marsan himself who proclaimed the results detailed below and listed on the official website of the Monaco City Hall.

A little about Georges Marsan. Born in 1957, he is married with a son and two daughters. Georges graduated from the University of Montpellier in pharmacy in 1979. He is a pharmacist as was his father, Gérard Marsan, and his grandfather, Antoine. Public service is in his blood as one of his grandfathers was a neighbourhood mayor who helped write the Constitution of Monaco in 1911. Georges Marsan is Grand Officer of the Order of Saint-Charles.

The energy transition and the launch of the smart city are among the priorities of the newly re-elected team. Heavy focus on the environment will be one of the major challenges in order to achieve a 50% reduction in the CO2 impact by 2030. And of course there is the future media library, which is to be completed by 2022.

Did you know that the mayor’s office is one of the oldest institutions in the Principality. It dates back to the 13th century, In those days, it used to be a type of parliament composed of citizens who were elected and presided over by the Lord of Monaco.
