Mamnoon Hussain (Urdu: ممنون حسین ; 23 December 1940 – 14 July 2021) was a Pakistani businessman, nationalist conservative, and politician. He served as the President of Pakistan from 9 September 2013 to 9 September 2018.

Hussain briefly served as Governor of Sindh in 1999. His term as governor was cut short by the military coup d'état staged in 1999. After the PML(N) secured majority in general elections held in 2013, Hussain was nominated and elected as President of Pakistan on 30 July 2013. He won the election in a landslide victory winning 432 votes to his rival Wajihuddin Ahmed's 77 votes.

In February 2020, Hussain was diagnosed with cancer. He died from the disease on 14 July 2021 at a hospital in Karachi, aged 80.
