Paul Zammit (born 28 April 1941) is a former Australian Liberal politician.
Zammit was born in Alexandria, Egypt. He was first the state member for Burwood from 1984 to 1988; then, after Burwood was abolished, he became state member for Strathfield from 1988 to 1996. In 1991, he was made Assistant Minister to the Premier Nick Greiner and held that post when John Fahey took over as Premier in 1992. In 1996, he stepped down to contest the federal Division of Lowe which he won. In 1998 he resigned from the Liberal Party, citing aircraft noise, and contested the seat as an Independent, managing to achieve only 15% of the vote, losing to Labor's John Murphy.
Zammit announced that he would seek his ultimate successful Liberal preselection of Lowe a day after he was reelected in Strathfield which drew outraged as he was reelected the day before with the understanding from him that he would serve as the reelected member for Strathfield for the full term.
