The details


Pierre Person (born 22 January 1989) is a French politician of La République En Marche! (LREM) who was elected to the National Assembly on 18 June 2017, representing Paris. Within his parliamentary group, he is considered a close ally of President Emmanuel Macron.

Political career

During his studies at the University of Poitiers, Person volunteered as the local chairman of the left-wing National Union of Students of France (UNEF). He was also a member of the Socialist Party until 2012. Ahead of the 2012 French presidential election, he worked for the campaign of Socialist candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

In 2015, Person co-founded "Les Jeunes avec Macron" (JAM) with three friends – Sacha Houlié, Florian Humez and Jean Gaborit – which had more than 22,000 members by September 2017. In March 2016, he helped launch “La Gauche Libre” (“The Free Left”), a think-tank advocating “left-wing liberalism” as represented by Emmanuel Macron. He later joined Macron's campaign staff ahead of the 2017 presidential elections.

Person has been a member of the National Assembly since the 2017 elections. In parliament, he first served on the Finance Committee from 2017 until 2018, where he was the rapporteur on the Ministry of Culture's annual budget]]. Since 2019, he has been a member of both the Committee on Legal Affairs and the Committee on Sustainable Development and Spatial Planning.

In November 2018, following the resignation of Christophe Castaner from the position as chairman of LREM, Person briefly considered a candidacy to succeed him but later withdrewn from the race for the party leadership; instead, Stanislas Guerini was elected. Person later became Guerini's deputy.

Political positions

In May 2018, Person co-sponsored an initiative in favour of a bioethics law extending to homosexual and single women free access to fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) under France's national health insurance; it was one of the campaign promises of President Emmanuel Macron and marked the first major social reform of his five-year term.

In 2019, Person was one of five members of the LREM parliamentary group who joined a cross-party initiative to legalize the distribution and use of cannabis.
