Jordi Pujol i Soley (born June 9, 1930) is a retired Spanish Catalan politician who was the leader of the party Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya (CDC) from 1974 to 2003, and President of the Generalitat de Catalunya from 1980 to 2003.

Pujol was born in Barcelona and received a medical degree from the University of Barcelona. He married Marta Ferrusola in 1956 and the couple has seven children.

He was captured in 1960 and detained for his protests against the regime of Francisco Franco. He was sentenced to seven years in prison, accused of organizing the opposition campaign. However, he got out after spending only two and a half years in jail, and immediately started a new line of political activity with the slogan "building the country". This aimed to raise Catalans' national awareness and create the necessary cultural and financial institutions for the development of Catalonia.

In 1974, he passed definitively to the political sphere on founding the political party called Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya (Democratic Convergence of Catalonia), of which he was the first Secretary. In 1977 he was elected to the Spanish Congress of Deputies, representing Barcelona and was re-elected at the 1979 General Election but resigned from the parliament in 1980.

He was elected as the president of the Generalitat de Catalunya in 1980, and reelected again in 1984, 1988, 1992, 1995 and 1999.

Pujol retired in 2003, leaving the head of the party (CDC) to Artur Mas.
