Émile Zuccarelli (Italian pronunciation: [eˈmil dzukkaˈrɛlli]; born 4 August 1940 in Bastia, Upper Corsica) is a French politician from Corsica. He serves as honorary President of the Radical Party of the Left and is a former mayor of Bastia.[1] Before his defeat in the French legislative election, 2007, he was deputy for Upper Corsica.[2]

In the French regional elections, 2004, Zuccarelli led a PRG list in Corsica and came out on top of all of the left-wing's lists. But the lack of dialog between him and another PRG list, led by his rival Paul Giacobbi, prevented him from winning.

Unlike his own political party, Zuccarelli called for a "NO" vote in the 2005 referendum on the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe.
