In Miraculous Ladybug, André Bourgeois is the mayor of Paris. He is said to have won election four times, meaning that he has been mayor for almost two decades. Moreover, in his most recent election, he won with an astounding 97% of the votes cast, a result which would make some dictators envious.
However, he shows very few appealing qualities as a politician. He has a weak personality and lacks charisma, is of average intelligence at best, and has trouble standing up to people. Further, despite his seemingly monumental popularity, a rather broad cross-section of Paris turns out to protest against one of his signature projects in "Mega Leech," apparently spontaneously. On top of that, he has done almost nothing to prevent akumatized villains from ravaging the city. It seems that every other week, one of them trashes the Eiffel Tower (which only happens to be the symbol of France). In fact, he himself has been akumatized into the villain Malediktator several times, which despite mostly not being his fault, would not seem to be good for his popularity.
In short, what makes André so incredibly popular as a mayor?
