French politician, leader of the Independent Ecological Movement (Mouvement Ecologiste Indépendant - MEI) which he founded in 1994, hoping to replace the Greens as the major Green party. However, due to the Green's electoral deals with larger parties, MEI failed to garner more than a few hundred supporters. MEI claimed to be purely ecologist, and neither on the left or right. The next year, Waechter failed to win enough endorsements to be a candidate in the 1995 French presidential election.
