Reagrupament or Reagrupament Independentista (Realignment for Independence or Independence Rally) is a political party in Catalonia, Spain, formally constituted on 3 October 2009. It is an umbrella group for various supporters of Catalan independence and the creation of a sovereign state for Catalonia.[1] It has no representation in the Catalan Parliament. It is the most important extra-parliamentary independentist party in Catalonia.

It was formed in July 2007 as a critical current within the Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC) by members who opposed the party's alliance with other two leftist, but non-independentist parties, the Socialists' Party of Catalonia (PSC) and the Iniciativa per Catalunya Verds (ICV). In 2009, they founded a new political platform, which was later re-organized as a political party.

Reagrupament's strategic aims are a democratic regeneration of Catalonia and the unilateral declaration of independence of the region by the Parliament of Catalonia.[2][3]

In 2010, Reagrupament negotiated an electoral alliance with the Catalan Solidarity for Independence, led by Joan Laporta. Despite a common aim - the independence of Catalonia - and a similar ideological background, the negotiations failed due to divergences in mid-term strategy and disagreements over the compilation of electoral lists.

In the 2010 parliamentary election in Catalonia, Reagrupament gained 1,28% of the vote and no seats in parliament. It had the best results in the Circumscription of Girona with 3,28%, and the worst in the Circumscription of Tarragona with 0.93%.

Reagrupament is led by Joan Carretero and Rut Carandell and its slogan is Independence and Democracy.

In the 2015 general election, the party is a member of the Democracy and Freedom coalition.[4]
