André Santini (French pronunciation: ​[ɑ̃dʁe sɑ̃tiˈni]; born 20 October 1940 in Paris) is a French politician, mayor of Issy-les-Moulineaux, Hauts-de-Seine.

A former member of the UDF, he did not support François Bayrou, the candidate of his party for the first round of 2007 French presidential election, choosing instead to support Nicolas Sarkozy(UMP). After the election, he joined the new right-of-center party Nouveau Centre (with others former UDF members who support Nicolas Sarkozy) in the National Assembly, where he had been re-elected during the June 2007 elections.

He was nominated as Secretary of State for the Civil Service by François Fillon in June 2007. Fillon thus broke with the misnamed "Balladur jurisprudence" according to which an indicted minister was to resign from his ministerial functions. Santini had been indicted, along with Charles Pasqua, for corruption concerning the creation of the art foundation Hamon.[1]

Santini's indictment in the Fondation Hamon affair was confirmed in September 2007 [2] and in February 2008.
