Danel Zúñiga (born 1 February 1981), is an Aranese politician. He was the Prime Minister of Arriola, being elected in the 2014 elections. He became the head of the Democratic Alliance, following a leadership election in which he unseated former leader Patrici Almato. He and his party were defeated in the 2018 elections, and on 2 April 2018 he announced he would be stepping down as the leader of the Democratic Alliance. He left office on 9 April 2018.

Among the main actions taken by the Zúñiga administration were the joining of the Treaty of Alliance Economic Integration, which was met with significant protest; the increase of Aranese troops in Alcudia; strengthened efforts to combat rising separatist sentiment; reform of Aranese labour laws; a controversial attempt at rolling back the availability of abortion; the increase of tobacco restrictions; and the reform of various autonomous statutes, in an attempt to establish a more centralized Aranese state.
