Jacques Bompard (born 24 February 1943 in Montpellier) is a French politician. He serves as the Mayor of Orange.

Early life[edit]

Jacques Bompard was born on 24 February 1943 in Montpellier, France.

Career[edit]

Bompard was elected as the Mayor of Orange in June 1995 and reelected in 2001, 2008, and 2014.[1]

He was originally a member of the Front National (FN), but left the party in 2005. He joined the Mouvement pour la France (MPF) later the same year. In 2010 he left the MPF, claiming that the party had grown too close to the presidential party UMP. In the 2010 regional elections, Bompard founded the Ligue du Sud, a right-wing political party close to the Bloc identitaire.

He was elected member of the National Assembly of France between 1986 and 1988 on a National Front (France) list. He was again elected on 17 June 2012.

Personal life[edit]

He is married to Marie-Claude Bompard, who serves as the Mayor of Bollène.
