Pierre Frogier (born November 16, 1950, Nouméa, New Caledonia) is a French politician, who was President of the Government of New Caledonia from 2001 to 2004.[1] He is French senator for New Caledonia since 2011, and was member of the National Assembly of France from 1996 to 2011.

He was born in Nouméa.

He was elected President of that collectivity by the territorial Congress (Congrès du territoire) on April 5, 2001, reelected in November 2002 when the government collapsed following the resignation of a minister, and left office on June 10, 2004, when a new government was elected after his party, the anti-independence The Rally–UMP, lost parliamentary elections.

When the new government collapsed, Frogier ran for president in elections two weeks later, on June 24, 2004, in which he was defeated, received 4 of the 11 votes in Congress.
