Born on November 29, 1932 in Paris by Corréziens, Jacques Chirac has more than 40 years of political life and held the highest office in the Republic. This career started in 1962 where he joined the cabinet of Prime Minister Georges Pompidou. At the same time, he was elected city councilor in Corrèze.
In 1972, he was appointed Minister of Agriculture under the chairmanship of Georges Pompidou. In 1974, he joined Valéry Giscard d'Estaing who, once elected president, appointed him Prime Minister. He entered the National Assembly where he was elected deputy in 1976. He was the first mayor of Paris elected by universal suffrage in 1977. Jacques Chirac was then appointed Prime Minister in 1986 during the presidential mandate of François Mitterrand.
In 1995, Jacques Chirac was elected President of the Republic. In 2002, he was largely re-elected against Jean-Marie Le Pen. In 2007, he decided not to represent himself and devoted himself to his foundation created in 2008. He died on September 26, 2019 at the age of 86.
On the face of the play, the politician has a solemn installation which refers to the iconography of his election to the Presidency of the French Republic in 1995. Jacques Chirac is surrounded by symbols which marked his history such as his seal which refers to its two presidential mandates as well as Chupicuaro, emblem of the Quai Branly museum, which refers to Jacques Chirac's passion for primitive arts.
