Abdoulatifou Aly (born April 12, 1960) is a member of the National Assembly of France and represents the island of Mayotte.[1] He is a member of the Democratic Movement (MoDem aka Mouvement Démocratique) nationally, but is a member of the Mahoran Departmentalist Movement (Mouvement départementaliste Mahorais) in Mayotte.

Aly campaigned strongly for the "Yes" result in the 2009 Mahoran status referendum, arguing that Mayotte and its citizens are an integral part of France: "We may be black, poor and Muslim, but we have been French longer than Nice."[2] The victory of the "Yes" vote ensures that Mayotte will become a full French department in 2011.
