Mahdzir bin Khalid (Jawi: مهذر بن خالد; born 15 December 1960) is a Malaysian politician who has served as the Minister of Rural Development in the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration under Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob since August 2021. He served as Minister of Education and Deputy Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water in the BN administration under former Prime Minister Najib Razak and former Minister Maximus Ongkili from May 2013 to the collapse of the BN administration in May 2018. He has served Chairman of the Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) since May 2020 and Member of Parliament (MP) for Padang Terap since May 2013. He also served as the 9th Menteri Besar of Kedah from December 2005 to March 2008, Kedah State Executive Councillor from March 2004 to his promotion to Menteri Besar in December 2005 and Member of the Kedah State Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Pedu from March 2004 to May 2013. He is a member and Vice-President of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), a component party of the ruling BN coalition which is aligned with the ruling Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition.
Mahdzir started his political career as a staffer and in 1999 became the political secretary to Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. In 2004 he was elected to the Kedah State Legislative Assembly for the rural seat of Pedu. In December 2005 he became the state's Chief Minister after his predecessor, Syed Razak Syed Zain Barakhbah, resigned because of ill health. Mahdzir had been acting in the position since July 2005.
Mahdzir's tenure as Menteri Besar came to an end after his BN Kedah state government was defeated in the 2008 election by the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) opposition coalition led by the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS). Mahdzir became Barisan Nasional's opposition leader in the state assembly before moving to federal parliament in the 2013 election, winning the seat of Padang Terap from PAS. After the election he was appointed as Deputy Minister for Energy, Green Technology and Water in the government of Prime Minister Najib Razak.
