He was general-assistant secretary on Information for the État français (the Vichy government), and as such in charge of its censorship. As a member of the Chamber of Deputies for Basses-Pyrénées from 1936 to 1940, on 10 July 1940, he had voted in favour of giving the Cabinet presided by Marshal Philippe Pétain authority to draw up a new constitution, thereby effectively ending the French Third Republic and establishing Vichy France. He was elected in 1956 to the National Assembly for the two last years of the Fourth Republic. As the sole extreme right representative, he was not affiliated to any of the parliamentary groups. He was a candidate of liste républicaine d'action sociale et paysanne.
