David Bitan (Hebrew: דוד ביטן, born 8 April 1960) is an Israeli lawyer and politician.
Bitan was born in Morocco and moved to Israel at the age of five. During his national service in the Israeli Defense Forces he served as a medic. He later attended Tel Aviv University, where he studied law, graduating in 1987. He later opened his own law firm.
A member of Likud, he became a member of Rishon LeZion City Council in 1988 after becoming head of the party's Rishon LeZion branch. He went on to become Deputy Mayor of the city.
He was placed 21st on the Likud list for the 2013 Knesset elections, but was moved down to 35th place after Likud agreed to run a joint list with Yisrael Beiteinu. With the alliance winning 31 seats, Bitan did not become a Knesset member. Prior to the 2015 elections he was placed 16th on the Likud list, taking the place reserved for the coastal plain. He was elected to the Knesset as Likud won 30 seats.
