Sir Ugo Pasquale Mifsud (12 September 1889 – 11 February 1942), son of Judge Gio Batta Mifsud and Philomena Marianna Muscat, was the third and fifth Prime Minister of Malta. He held office from 1924 to 1927 and from 1932 to 1933. He was a member of the Nationalist Party and the Maltese Italian community.

During the Second World War, Sir Ugo Mifsud and Dr. George Borg Olivier were the only remaining Nationalist members of parliament. Sir Ugo fainted after delivering a very passionate defence against the deportation to concentration camps in Uganda of Enrico Mizzi and 49 other Maltese Italians accused of pro-Italian political activities. He died a few days later, aged 52.
