Vasile Sebastian Dîncu (Romanian pronunciation: [vaˈsile ˈdɨŋku]; born 25 November 1961 in Năsăud) is a Romanian politician who serves as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Regional Development and Public Administration in the cabinet of Prime Minister Dacian Cioloș. Although the Cioloș cabinet is non-partisan, he is a member of the Social Democratic Party and the Party of European Socialists. He was a Member of the European Parliament in 2007 with the accession of Romania to the European Union and a member of the Senate of Romania.

In his party he has been associated with the so-called Cluj Group, who are in favour of reforms in the Social Democratic Party. The Cluj Group was strongly opposed to the efforts of the PSD leadership, aimed at impeaching the Romanian President.
