Dr. Siti Mariah binti Mahmud (born 14 February 1958) is a Malaysian politician and the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Kota Raja constituency in Selangor. She is a former member of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) party in the Pakatan Rakyat opposition coalition. Currently she has joined National Trust Party (Amanah).
Mahmud was elected to Parliament in the 2008 election, winning the seat of Kota Raja, which had been held by the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition. It was reported that her victory—for the Islamist PAS—came with the support of ethnic Chinese and Indian voters.
In 2005, Siti Mariah was the first female candidate for vice-president of PAS, but her candidacy was defeated. She has subsequently been portrayed as representing the "new dynamic progressive voice" of PAS.
Before entering politics, Siti Mariah was a doctor and lecturer. She has six children.
