It's quite rare, so it needs to be mentioned. A president of a French game retailers association (who is also gamer and game journalist) decided to go into politics. Right now, he is campaigning for being the mayor of a small town in the North of France.

Meet [URL=http://www.davidhecq.fr/]David Hecq[/URL]. He is the president of the [URL=http://www.afrs.fr/]AFRS (Association Française de Revendeurs Spécialisés)[/URL] (for "French specialized retailers association". It is a nonprofit game retailers association, independent from game industry. They are called "specialized retailers", first because this association regroups stores that sell video games only, second because it doesn't include big retailing companies whose stores are found in most big French towns (such as Micromania, Score Games and Dock Games) . The AFRS regroups only independent retailers who have their own business in selling games. David Hecq also created video game site [URL=http://www.objectifmicro.org/]Objectif Micro[/URL] in 1996. This website provides informations about game retailers, and also reviews of games and game systems.

As municipal elections to elect city mayors and councillors will be held in 2008, Hecq decided to focus on his campaign to be mayor of [URL=http://www.anzin-saint-aubin.com/]Anzin Saint-Aubin[/URL], 2500 inhabitants, a former village that became a town. It is located in the North of France. Elections will happen in 2008, for all French towns and villages. Hecq is not affiliated to any existing political party.

So OK, it's not presidential elections, and it's not the biggest town in the World. But it's really a news in which "politics and video games collide", and I wanted to share it with you.
