Gabriel Rufián Romero (born 8 February 1982) is a Spanish politician and activist. In the Spanish general election, 2015 and 2016 he led the Republican Left of Catalonia, a pro-independence electoral party.[1] He is also a member of the secretariat of the Assemblea Nacional Catalana and a member of Súmate, two other pro-independence groups.[2]

In the 2016 general election, he was elected to the Congress of Deputies for the constituency of Barcelona. The presence of Rufián in the ERC list has been suggested to be a case of tokenism.[3]
