French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe claimed victory in the race to become mayor of Le Havre in Sunday’s municipal elections.

He won with 58.8% of the vote, according to TF1/LCI TV.

“We’re happy in Le Havre, we will celebrate this victory,” Philippe said.

France’s constitution allows Philippe to nominate a deputy to his mayoral seat while he remains prime minister, but his victory will raise questions over a possible government reshuffle.
