Páll á Reynatúgvu (born 26 July 1967), is a Faroese politician, and former football player, currently serving as a member of the Faroese Parliament.[1] He was first elected in 1998, and again in 2002, when he assumed the position of Minister of Health and Social Affairs. After being re-elected in 2004, he became a member of the "Fíggjarnevndin" (Financial Committee of the Løgting).[2]

At the 2008 parliamentary elections á Reynatúgvu was not re-elected, but sat in parliament when Anita á Fríðriksmørk took maternity leave, and as his party was a part of the Landsstýri, he was next on the list to get a seat in the parliament.[3] Before Páll á Reynatúgvu was elected for the Løgting in 2011, he was president of the SEV, which provides the Faroe Islands with electricity. He had to quit this job, because the Faroese law does not allow a person to be a member of the Løgting and at the same time to be a member of a governmental owned institution or company.[4]
