David Wagner (since April 2015).
David Wagner was born on the 3th of march 1979 in the city of Luxembourg and grew up in the neighbourhood of Mühlenbach. Following the student strikes in 1995 and 1996 that sparked his political commitment, he became active in the student organisation UNEL which he chaired from 2000 to 2002. In 1996, he also joined the Luxembourg Socialist Workers’ Party (LSAP) and the socialist youth organisation JSL. He was the secretary of the JSL and its representative in the executive committee of the LSAP. As he never really agreed with the government policies of the Socialist Party and its neoliberal agenda, he left the LSAP in 1998 and participated actively in the founding of déi Lénk.
After his student years in Luxembourg and Paris, David Wagner worked as a parliamentary assistant for the member of Parliament Serge Urbany (déi Lénk) from 2002 and 2004. He then became a journalist in the weekly newspaper Woxx, before returning to work as a parliamentary assistant for déi Lénk in December 2013. In April 2015, he became a Member of Parliament himself and got re-elected in the national elections in 2018. David Wagner is also a member of the municipal council in the city of Luxembourg.
In the parliamentary group, David Wagner is in charge of the following topics: foreign policy, finance and budget, housing, environment, transport policy, education and media policy (see the detailed allocation of topics).
