Jean Tiberi (born 30 January 1935) is a French politician who was mayor of Paris from 22 May 1995 to 24 March 2001. As of 2007, he was mayor of the 5th arrondissement of Paris and deputy to the French National Assembly from the second district of Paris.[1]

Of Corsican descent, Tiberi first entered the National Assembly in August 1968 as the replacement for René Capitant, who was appointed to the government as Minister of Justice. He was re-elected in the 1973 election, serving until early 1976, when he was appointed to the government as Secretary of State in charge of Food Industries, under the Minister of Agriculture and the Minister of Industry and Research. He served in that position until August 1976, after which he returned to the National Assembly in a by-election in November 1976 to replace Monique Tisne. He has been re-elected to the National Assembly in every election since then.[1]

He was Mayor of the 5th arrondissement of Paris from March 1983 to May 1995, when he became Mayor of Paris. After serving as Mayor of Paris,[1] he was again elected as Mayor of the 5th arrondissement in 2001.[2]

Jean Tiberi and his wife Xavière Tiberi were involved in some corruption scandals in the Paris region in which Mr Tiberi was accused of vote-rigging.

In 1998, a justice-ordered search of Jean and Xavière Tiberi's apartment on the Place du Panthéon showed that they possessed illegal firearms. They were not prosecuted in exchange for the destruction of the weapons. [1]

The above actions are sometimes referred to by the press as Corsican mores. [2]

Along with Jean-Pierre Soisson and Didier Julia, Jean Tiberi was among the longest-serving members of the National Assembly, in which he has served 10 terms and 44 years. He did not run for reelection in 2012.
