Noël Mamère (born 25 December 1948 in Libourne, Gironde) is a French journalist and politician. He is the mayor of Bègles in Gironde as well as deputy to the French National Assembly for that constituency. He was for several years a member of the party Europe Écologie–The Greens, but left it in late September 2013.


Noël Mamère rose to fame in the 1980s as a journalist and anchorman, in particular on Antenne 2.

In 1992, he became president of Brice Lalonde's Ecology Generation party, from which he was expelled in 1994. He then founded "Ecology-Solidarity Convergences", of which he was president, before joining Les Verts in 1998.

In 2002, he was presidential candidate and garnered 5.25% of the votes.

On 5 June 2004, he stirred up controversy by conducting a marriage ceremony for a male homosexual couple, nine years before same-sex marriage became legal in France.
