Florian Philippot (born 24 October 1981 at Croix, Nord) is a French politician, a senior civil servant on leave, one of the five vice presidents of the Front National (FN) and one of the main advisors of Marine Le Pen, president of this party.

In October 2011, he was appointed by Marine Le Pen strategic director of her presidential campaign.[1][2] In July 2012, he was appointed vice president in charge of strategy and communication of the FN.[3]

Family background

Born on 24 October 1981 at Croix, he grew up in Bondues, a residential suburb in the Urban Community of Lille Métropole.[2]

His father was a public head teacher and his mother a primary school teacher.[2] His brother, Damien Philippot, a graduate of IFOP).

Political career

In 2012, he was parliamentary candidate in Moselle's 6th constituency. Despite the presence of a dissident candidate of the FN (4.09% for Eric Vilain) in the first round, he came second with 26.34% and defeated the incumbent UMP MP Pierre Lang (25.02%).[4] Mayor of Forbach since 2008, Laurent Kalinowski defeated Florian Philippot in the run-off (53.70% against 46.30%).[5]

On 9 November 2012, he went to Colombey-les-Deux-Églises to pay homage to Charles de Gaulle, putting flowers on his grave "in a private capacity" and stating his gaullist convictions. This act irritated members of the FN, due to Jean-Marie Le Pen's animosity toward the defunct President. His convictions and ideas were described as incompatible with de Gaulle's legacy, by the UMP party.
