Dato' Seri Mahdzir bin Khalid (Jawi: مهذر بن خالد; born 15 December 1960) is a Malaysian politician. He is a member of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) party in Malaysia's opposition Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition. He is also the Member of Parliament of Malaysia for the seat of Padang Terap, Kedah, having been elected in the 2013 general elections.
Mahdzir had served as Minister of Education of Malaysia from 2015 until 2018 when BN lost control of the federal government. He was formerly Deputy Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water from 2013 to 2015. Previously, he served as the ninth Menteri Besar of Kedah from 2005 to 2008 and represented the seat of Pedu in the Kedah State Legislative Assembly from 2004 to 2013.
Mahdzir started his political career as a staffer and in 1999 became the political secretary to Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. In 2004 he was elected to the Kedah State Legislative Assembly for the rural seat of Pedu. In December 2005 he became the state's Chief Minister after his predecessor, Syed Razak Syed Zain Barakhbah, resigned because of ill health. Mahdzir had been acting in the position since July 2005.
Mahdzir's tenure as Menteri Besar came to an end after his BN Kedah state government was defeated in the 2008 election by the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) opposition coalition led by the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS). Mahdzir became Barisan Nasional's opposition leader in the state assembly before moving to federal parliament in the 2013 election, winning the seat of Padang Terap from PAS. After the election he was appointed as Deputy Minister for Energy, Green Technology and Water in the government of Prime Minister Najib Razak.
