Colonel Mohamed Abdul Salam Mahgoub (Arabic: محمد عبد السلام المحجوب‎‎, Muḥammad `Abdul-Salām al-Maḥgūb) (born in 1935 in Dakahlia Governorate)[1] is an Egyptian politician. Since 2006, he has been the Minister of Local Development in the Cabinet of Egypt. He was previously Governor of Alexandria Governorate, his term expiring upon his appointment to the Cabinet.[1][2]

Prior to entering politics, Maghoub had been an officer of the Egyptian Army, having graduated from the Egyptian Military Academy in 1955 with a degree in military science. He was assigned as military attaché in several Egyptian embassies around the world prior to being appointed Vice-Chair of National Security in 1992. He subsequently served as Governor of Ismaïlia prior to being reassigned to Alexandria in 1997.[1]

Mahgoub is currently seeking election to the People's Assembly for the District of al-Raml in Alexandria, seeking to replace the retiring Sobhy Saleh Moussa Abu Amer.[3][4]
