Amin al-Hafez (Arabic: أمين الحافظ‎‎),(28 January 1926 – 13 July 2009) was the Prime Minister of Lebanon from 25 April 1973 to 21 June 1973. He was also a long-running Member of Parliament for Tripoli in the Lebanese Parliament until 1996.

Amin el-Hafez served a turbulent two-month term as Prime Minister of Lebanon after appointment by then Lebanese President Suleiman Franjieh and opposition of the Sunni leaders who refused to recognize his appointment. He resigned after just 2 months of serving, but continued representing his constituency of Tripoli in the Parliament.

He died aged 83 after a long-running battle with an undisclosed chronic illness.
