Marie-Christine Verdier-Jouclas (born 19 March 1965) is a French politician representing La République En Marche! She was elected to the French National Assembly on 18 June 2017, representing the department of Tarn.
In addition to her committee assignments, Verdier-Jouclas has been a member of the French delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe since 2017. In this capacity, she serves on the Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons and the Sub-Committee on Integration.
