Pierre Maudet (born 6 March 1978) is a Swiss and French politician. Maudet is a member of FDP.The Liberals. He was the mayor of Geneva from 1 June 2011 to 31 May 2012.[1][2][3]


Pierre Maudet is the son of Henri Maudet (born 1948), a French who first studied theology in Paris before moving to Geneva and becoming a lawyer, and Susanna Willy (born 1943), a teacher.[4][5] Maudet was born on 6 March 1978 in Geneva, Switzerland and attended the University of Fribourg.

On 17 June 2012 he was elected to the Conseil d'État, the executive council of the State and Canton of Geneva with 40,966 votes out of 104,375 cast.[6]

In 2017 he was nominated by his party to run for the Federal Council. He lost the election in the second ballot receiving 90 votes against Ignazio Cassis who received 125 votes and therefore achieved the absolute majority. The election took place on the 20th of September 2017.[7]

In 2018, he writes a regular column in the Blick newspaper Blick.[8]
