Akbarsho Iskandarov (born 1 August 1951)[1] is a Tajik politician who was twice Acting President of Tajikistan.

From October 6, 1991 to December 2, 1991, he acted as President when Rahmon Nabiyev stepped down to fight Tajikistan's first presidential election. Nabiyev won the election and took over as the first popularly elected president in the country's history, but resigned in September 1992, following a coup d'état.[2] Iskandrov again took the interim presidency and later resigned on 20 November 1992, after which the office of President was abolished and Emomalii Rahmon was installed as head of state.[3] Iskandarov also served as Ambassador to Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan.[1]
