Frédéric Cuvillier (born December 9, 1968 in Boulogne-sur-Mer , Pas-de-Calais department ) is a French politician of the Parti Socialiste (PS). He is Mayor of Boulogne-sur-Mer and was Deputy Minister or State Secretary for Transport, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries in the Ministry for the Environment, Sustainable Development and Energy in the Ayrault I , Ayrault cabinets from May 16, 2012 to August 25, 2014 II and Valls I .
Studies, maître de conférences and mayor
After attending school, Cuvillier studied law , graduated with a doctorate in law and later became a lecturer in public law at the Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale (ULCO) as maître de conférences .
He joined the PS in 1984 and was Parliamentary Assistant to Guy Lengagne from 1989 to 1993 and then First Secretary of the PS of Boulogne-sur-Mer.
In the local elections in 1995 he ran in Boulogne-sur-Mer on a list of non-party leftists ( Divers gauche ) led by Guy Lengagne, who had previously been excluded from the PS and is now president of the local electoral community Rassembler Agir pour le Boulonnais (RAB) was. Although the PS emerged victorious from the election with its top candidate Dominique Dupilet , the Divers gauche supported the re-election of Mayor Jean Muselet , who was a candidate for Divers droite . A by-election was required after Muselet's death and the 1995 local elections were invalid. For this purpose, Lengagne and Cuvillier formed a joint electoral list with parts of Muselet's supporters, with the result that Frédéric Cuvillier became vice-mayor of Boulogne-sur-Mer in December 1996. As such, he was responsible for residential construction until March 2001 and at the same time, from December 1996 to 2008, he was Vice-President of the Communauté d'agglomération du Boulonnais .
In November 2002, Cuvillier was elected mayor of Boulogne-sur-Maire for the first time to succeed Guy Lengagne and was re-elected in 2008 for a further six-year term. From 2008 he was also President of the Communauté d'agglomération du Boulonnais . Since the new government under François Hollande had issued the slogan to take action against the accumulation of offices, he resigned from both functions shortly after his appointment as Assistant Minister of the State Government in July 2012. His successor as mayor was Mireille Hingrez-Cereda , who also belongs to the PS . He was also a member of the General Council of the Pas-de-Calais département between 2004 and 2007, where he represented the canton of Le Portel .
In the local elections in spring 2014, he was re-elected mayor of his hometown. He thus, contrary to Hollande's line, combined this office with a government function.
MP and Minister
In the parliamentary elections on June 17, 2007 , he was elected as a candidate for the PS as a member of the National Assembly and has since then represented the constituency of Pas-de-Calais V as the successor to Guy Lengagne . Due to his membership in the government, his mandate was suspended between July 21, 2012 and September 27, 2014.
Cuvillier, who is also a member of the National Council of the Parti Socialiste, supported the draft of a party program presented by Bertrand Delanoë at the PS party convention in Reims in 2008 and later joined the party-internal group Répondre à Gauche , with which he joined François Hollande in the primaries for the candidacy of the PS in the 2012 presidential election .
After François Hollande was elected President and Jean-Marc Ayrault was appointed Prime Minister, he was appointed Minister Assistant for Transport and Maritime Economy in his cabinet on May 17, 2012, and as such was the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development and associated with energy. He also retained his role in the Ayrault II and Valls I Governments , renaming his portfolio to Transport, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries on the Ayrault II government's appointment and changing his status to Secretary of State in the Valls I government. In the course of the formation of the Valls II government , he renounced his office because, in his opinion, the competencies as State Secretary were not sufficient for the political tasks ahead. Accordingly, he left office on August 25, 2014.
Just one day after leaving government, Cuvillier clearly criticized Hollande and Valls. He accused them of not having understood the message of the 2014 local elections (in which the socialists had suffered a clear defeat) and also told Hollande that he was not speaking sufficiently and clearly enough with the French.
