Stéphane Le Foll ( ; born 3 February 1960) is a French politician serving as Mayor of Le Mans since 2018. A member of the Socialist Party, he was Minister of Agriculture under President François Hollande from 2012 to 2017.


Early political career

Born in Le Mans, Le Foll was elected to the European Parliament for the Socialist Party, part of Party of European Socialists, in 2004. He served until 2012, when he was appointed to the Government of France. While he successfully stood as a candidate for the National Assembly in the 2012 legislative election, he resigned to remain Minister of Agriculture and fellow party member Sylvie Tolmont took the seat.

Minister of Agriculture

As Minister of Agriculture in all governments appointed by François Hollande, he was in charge of reforming the Common Agricultural Policy. He also put an accent on "re-socialising rural territories in France". In 2014, he replaced Najat Vallaud-Belkacem as Government Spokesperson, holding the weekly press briefing at the Élysée Palace. In 2016, he became the longest-serving Minister of Agriculture since the office was established in 1836.

After the death of Jean-Claude Boulard, Le Foll became Mayor of Le Mans. He was succeeded by Tolmont in Parliament, his predecessor.Stéphane Le Foll rejoint la mairie du  Mans et s’éloigne du siège du PS, Le Monde, 14 June 2018.
