Simon Loueckhote (born May 7, 1957) is a member of the Senate of France, representing the island of New Caledonia. He is a member of the Union for a Popular Movement.

Loueckhote served as the sole member from New Caledonia to the French Senate from 1992 until 2011.[1] Loueckhote announced in September 2011 that he would not seek re-election to the Senate[1] after the Union for a Popular Movement political party threw its support to two other candidates, Pierre Frogier and Hilarion Vendegou, in June.[1]

In 2011, New Caledonia's representation in the Senate of France was increased to two members as part of the Senate's enlargement.[1] An electoral college held on September 24, 2011, will elect the two new Senators, who will succeed Loueckhote.[1]
