Charles Goerens

Charles Goerens (2014).

Charles Goerens (born 6 February 1952 in Ettelbruck[1]) is a politician from Luxembourg.

He studied agricultural science before he was first elected to the northern district constituency as a member of the Democratic Party in 1979. From 1989 until 1994 he was its chairman.[2]

Goerens was a member of the European Parliament from 1982 to 1984, from 1994 to 1999, and again from 2009 to present.[3]

He served as Minister for Cooperation, Humanitarian Action, and Defence in the government of Jean-Claude Juncker from 7 August 1999 until 31 July 2004.[2] He also briefly served as Minister for Foreign Affairs from 20 July 2004 until 31 July 2004. He lost these posts when Juncker had to form a new coalition government after the 2004 parliamentary elections.
