Zachary Wong Wai-yin (born 22 December 1957, Hong Kong) is a Yuen Long District Councillor (representing Nam Ping) for the Meeting Point and later Democratic Party and former member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong.[1]

He joined the Association for the Rights of the Elderly founded by Yeung Sum and Frederick Fung in 1982. He was elected chairman of the association in 1991. In 1988, he joined the Meeting Point and became a central committee in 1991. He was also part of the Joint Committee on the Promotion of Democratic Government. He organised most of the rallies, petitions and 50-hour fast strike at the Star Ferry Pier in 1989 for a faster pace of democracy.

He was first elected to the Yuen Long District Board in 1988 and replaced Tai Chin-wah as a LegCo member in a by-election in 1991. He stood in the Legislative Council elections in 1998 and again in 2012 but did not get elected.
