José Núñez-Melo (born November 13, 1956) is a former Canadian politician, who was elected to the House of Commons of Canada in the 2011 election. He represented the electoral district of Laval as a member of the New Democratic Party.
Núñez-Melo was not allowed to run as a NDP candidate in the 2015 federal election for the new riding of Vimy after he publicly criticized nomination meeting procedures which he claimed were contrary to the rules of the party. The party policy requires open nominations, while Núñez-Melo reportedly wanted a guarantee of automatic renomination as an incumbent MP.
