He has been a member of the French National Assembly since 1981, when he stood as a Socialist Party candidate, and was Minister for Commerce in the Socialist Party government of Laurent Fabius between 1984 and 1986.

Bockel (commonly referred to at "JMB" in France) is a lawyer and has been mayor of Mulhouse since 1989. On the right wing of the Socialist Party, he declared himself to be an admirer and strong supporter of the policies of Tony Blair.

In November 2007 he announced the formation of a new centre-left political party, Modern Left (Gauche Moderne), following his resignation from the Socialist Party when joining the Sarkozy administration, and is using this party as a vehicle to campaign in the municipal elections of 2008 for a fourth term as mayor.
