Alain Lambert (born in Alençon, on 20 July 1946) is a French politician[1] and a notary by profession. He has been involved in politics since 1983 and has served as a local councillor in Alençon and a councillor on both the department council of Orne (1992–2002) and the regional council of Lower Normandy. Between 7 May 2002 and 30 March 2004 he was France's Finance Minister. In 2009 he attempted to be chosen to head the centre right wing UMP list for the 2010 regional elections and was successful, gaining 54.5% of the votes of party members. However, Lambert was later forced to announce he would not stand, due to disagreements within the party over his candidature.
