Marie-Noëlle Lienemann (born 12 July 1951 in Belfort) is a French politician who served as Member of the European Parliament for the North West of France.[1] She is a member of the Socialist Party, part of the Party of European Socialists. She studied at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan).

In 2012, Lienemann co-founded the "Now The Left" grouping alongside Emmanuel Maurel. Together they urged President François Hollande to abandon the government's 2013 deficit targets and embark on a dash for growth.[2] Following the Socialist Party’s losses in the 2014 municipal elections, Lienemann and Maurel co-authored an open letter addressed to Hollande, calling on him to return to Socialist basics, end a freeze on public sector salaries, and raise the minimum salary and pensions.[3]
