Datuk Aaron Ago anak Dagang (born 12 December 1958) is a Malaysian politician. He is the Member of Parliament of Malaysia for the Kanowit constituency in Sarawak, representing the Sarawak People's Party (PRS) in the federal opposition but state governing Sarawak Parties Alliance coalition.[1]

Before entering federal Parliament, Dagang was political secretary to then Minister for Energy, Communications and Multimedia, Leo Moggie Irok.[2] Dagang then replaced Moggie in the Kanowit seat when the latter stepped down for the 2004 general election.[3] After the election, Dagang's Sarawak Native People's Party was de-registered,[4] and he joined the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party[5] and later the PRS.[6] He retained the Kanowit seat in the 2008 election unopposed.[7]
