Given a connected compact $C^\infty$ manifold M of dimension $n\ge2$ without boundary, a Riemannian metric $g$ on M and an eigenvalue $\lambda^*(M,g)$ of multiplicity $\nu\ge2$ of the Laplace-Beltrami operator $\Delta_g,$ we provide a sufficient condition such that the set of the deformations of the metric $g,$ which preserve the multiplicity of the eigenvalue, is locally a manifold of codimension $1/2 \nu(\nu+1)-1$ in the space of $C^k$ symmetric covariant 2-tensors on M. Furthermore we prove that such a condition is fulfilled when $n=2$ and $\nu=2.$
