Ilgar Mammadov (Azerbaijani: İlqar Məmmədov) (born June 14, 1970) is an Azerbaijani politician based in Baku, Azerbaijan. He is known for his views and initiatives that reflect knowledge and perceptions of the new generation of Azerbaijani public opinion leaders.
Mammadov's previous political affiliation was with the National Independence Party where he served as Deputy Chairman between 1998 and 2003. The National Independence Party was a center-right party – member of the International Democrat Union alongside with French UMP, German CDU, British Conservatives, and others. He left the party in 2003 due to growing policy disagreements.
However, he was banned from TV and radio after his 19 March 2009 Republicanist speech on ANS TV live air. He protested then the substance and the conduct of the 18 March 2009 referendum that permitted president to be elected unlimited times to the office.
Ilgar is a regular contributor to leading Azerbaijani media and international conferences on politics, democratization, geopolitics, and conflict resolution. His blog  was the first political online diary in the country.
