This paper studies local stability of a parametric optimal control problem governed by semilinear elliptic equations with mixed pointwise constraints. We show that if the unperturbed problem satisfies the strictly nonnegative second-order optimality conditions, then the solution map is upper Hölder continuous in \(L^\infty \)-norm of control variable.
