Political careerEdit

In parliament, Djebbari served as the LREM group's coordinator on the Committee on Sustainable Development and Regional Planning from 2017 until 2019.[5] In this capacity, he was the rapporteur on a 2018 bill on the reform of the SNCF. From January until September 2019, he later served as one of his parliamentary group's spokespersons under the leadership of its chairman Gilles Le Gendre.[6]

In September 2019, Djebbari joined the government of Prime Minister Édouard Philippe and was appointed Secretary of State for Transport in the Ministry of Ecology, led by Élisabeth Borne.[7] Early in his tenure, he led unsuccessful efforts to rescue French airline Aigle Azur until a commercial court rejected financial rescue offers.[8]

Within his LREM party, Djebarri is in charge of advising chairman Stanislas Guerini on campaign financing ahead of the 2022 French presidential election.[9]
