Abdel-Aziz bin Habtour (born 8 August 1955) is a Yemeni politician who served as Governor of Aden during the Houthi takeover in Yemen. He is a member of the General People's Congress, sitting on its permanent committee since 1995. An ally of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, he condemned the 2014–15 Yemeni coup d'état and received the deposed leader after his flight from the Houthi-controlled capital of Sana'a on 21 February 2015. He is also a vocal opponent of the separatist movement in former South Yemen, saying the action is too fractured and small to achieve its goals.

In October 2016, bin Habtour was appointed as Prime Minister in the Houthi-led parallel government.

Bin Habtour served as Deputy Minister of Education from 2001 to 2008 and subsequently as Rector of the University of Aden.
