Nizar Baraka (born 6 February 1964 in Rabat, Morocco) is a Moroccan politician of the Istiqlal Party. He was minister of Finance and Economy in the government of Abdelilah Benkirane.
In April 2013, while King Mohammed VI was on vacation in France, Hamid Chabat Secretary-General of the Istiqlal Party announced his intentions to leave the coalition that forms the cabinet of Abdelilah Benkirane. Consequently, a resignation request was submitted on 9 July 2013 for all the Party's ministers.
On 21 August 2013 he was appointed to head the CESE while Aziz Akhannouch assumed the position of Finance Minister on an interim basis.
