Coronavirus has forced the French government to postpone the second round of local elections:
France will postpone the second round of mayoral elections to June 21 due to the coronavirus outbreak, two political sources told Reuters on Monday.
Sources also said that the results of first round of local elections on Sunday would remain valid.
However, nobody really knows how long SARS-CoV-2 will be a major issue. Theoretically, the desired scenario implies mitigating the infections over a large period of time to allow the medical system to cope with the patients.
I am wondering if the second round can be postponed indefinitely.
Question: Is there a limit to how long the second round of French mayoral elections can be postponed?
