Anne Vondeling (2 March 1916 – 22 November 1979) was a Dutch politician of the Labour Party (PvdA).

He was a minister in the fourth Drees cabinet and vice prime minister in the Cals cabinet. Later (1972–1979) he became President of the Dutch House of Representatives, in which capacity he put much emphasis on the usage of correct and clear words by the MPs. He later became a member of the European Parliament. After his death he was succeeded there by Phili Viehoff.[1] The Anne Vondeling prize is given annually to journalists who write in a clear manner concerning political subjects.
