Julián Isaías Rodríguez Díaz (born 16 December 1942, Valle de la Pascua[1]) is a Venezuelan politician and lawyer. He was appointed Vice President of Venezuela on 29 January 2000 by Hugo Chávez, and served in the post until 26 December 2000.

Rodríguez Díaz earned his law degree and specialized in labor law at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, where he began his political activities with the political party Democratic Action.[1] He left Democratic Action in 1967 together with Luis Beltrán Prieto Figueroa to join the new Movimiento Electoral del Pueblo, which he participated in until 1981.[1]

In 1990 he served as Attorney Aragua. In the elections of November 1998 he was elected to the Venezuelan Senate, representing the state of Aragua.[1]

On 29 January 2000, he was appointed as the first executive vice president of Venezuela. Eleven months later, on December 26, with the majority vote of the National Assembly, he was appointed as Attorney General of the Republic, a position he held until November 2007.[1]
