Dr. Abd-al-Hafid Mahmud al-Zulaytini (Arabic: عبد الحفيظ محمود الزليطني) is a Libyan politician who served as Assistant Secretary of the General People's Committee of Libya (Deputy Prime Minister) prior to the Libyan Civil War.
In late 2001, Zulaytini took over from Ahmad Abdel Karim Ahmad as acting chairman of the governing council for state-owned National Oil Company (NOC), becoming the top man in the petroleum sector in Libya. Ahmad had been chairman since 1 October 2000 and was relatively a new figure promoted by someone close to Gaddafi. He had taken over from Abdallah Salem el-Badri.
