Datuk Liew Vui Keong (simplified Chinese: 刘伟强; traditional Chinese: 劉偉強; pinyin: Liú Wěi Qiáng; born 18 January 1960) is a Malaysian politician. He was the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Sandakan constituency in Sabah from 2008 until his defeat in the 2013 election. During his term in Parliament he was a deputy minister in the federal government.

He was the President of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) from 2006 to 2014, when he was replaced by Teo Chee Kang in a rancorous internal dispute. Liew contested Teo's claim to the party's presidency with the Registrar of Societies.[1]
