French politician and government minister, by profession a notaire.
Hugues was elected in 1946 as a Radical-Socialist député for the Alpes-Maritimes département to the second constituent National Assembly, and subsequently to the Assemblée nationale, in which he sat until 1958. In 1959, he was elected to the Senate as a member of the Gauche démocratique (Democratic Left).
Hugues left the government following the rejection of the planned European Defence Community in 1954, which he had warmly supported. He followed Henri Queuille and André Morice into the Radical dissidence in 1956, which led to the creation of the Centre républicain. He voted for Charles de Gaulle in June 1958, but was beaten in the November 1958 elections.
He was mayor of Vence and councillor for the Alpes-Maritimes.
He died in office in Paris on 10 February 1966.
The castle in Vences is today the Fondation Émile Hugues, a modern and contemporary art museum.
