He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in the 1999 election, finishing sixth amongst CSV candidates in the Centre constituency, where six CSV deputies were elected.[3] In the communal elections of October 1999, Wiseler was elected to Luxembourg City's communal council in third-place amongst CSV candidates (six were elected);[4] he appointed as an échevin in the DP-CSV administration, and served in this position from 1 January 2000 until 30 July 2004.[1]
