Thomas Brezzo, the new President of the Conseil National de Monaco, pledges an era of “dynamism”

Thomas Brezzo was voted in as the new President of the Conseil National de Monaco in early April. The lawyer and elected official has pledged to “breathe new life” into the parliament with a tenure focused on “dynamism” and “making things happen”. 

A lawyer by profession, having ascended to the Monaco Bar in 2016, 44-year-old Thomas Brezzo has been a member of the Conseil National – National Council – since 2018. 

He joined under Stéphane Valeri, who now heads up Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, and soon took up the role of Chairman of the Legislation Commission.

Given his background in business and criminal law, as well as his prior experience of running the Monaco Legal Consulting firm and 99 Avocats, alongside his partner Thomas Giaccardi, he has been a central component in the drive towards compliance with Moneyval. Brezzo was the official rapporteur of the laws governing the Principality’s anti-money laundering, financing of terrorism and corruption mechanism in the months before his new appointment. 

He took over the presidency of the Conseil National from Brigitte Boccone-Pagès. It was a near unanimous victory, with 22 out of a possible 23 ballots cast in his favour.

According to a statement from the Conseil National, Brezzo will now “devote himself full-time to the Presidency of the Assembly”. 

Brezzo, for his part, says he intends to “put the Conseil National back in working order… and make its systems more transparent and effective”. 

When questioned by Monaco Info’s Emilie Rousseau on his intentions for the presidency, Brezzo replied that he would be focusing “first on Monegasques, then foreign residents and workers”. Key areas that will receive his closest attention include accommodation, transport and the attractiveness of Monaco.


Summing up his ambitions, Brezzo said he hoped to bring a “new dynamic and dynamism” to the Conseil National, and “breathe new life” into the Council by “making things happen”.  

The statement from the Conseil National adds, “The National Councilors are enthusiastic and motivated to continue their mandate under this new presidency.”
