The National Woodcutters Rally–Democratic (French: Rassemblement National des Bûcherons–Democratique, RNB-D), also known as National Woodcutters Rally–Kombila (RNB-Kombila) is a political party in Gabon.
The RNB-D was formed in July 1998 by supporters of Pierre-André Kombila, who had been expelled from the National Woodcutters' Rally. Kombila ran in the December 1998 presidential elections, finishing fourth in a field of eight candidates with 1.5% of the vote. In the 2001 parliamentary elections the party won a single seat in the National Assembly.
At the RNB-D's Third Ordinary Congress on 25 and 26 January 2008, the party decided to formally join the Presidential Majority and Kombila was elected to the newly created position of RNB-D President. Alexis Mengue Méyé was elected as Secretary-General.
The party lost its single seat in the 2011 parliamentary elections.
