Ahmad Tibi is a Palestinian-Israeli politician and leader of Ta'al (the Arab Movement for Renewal), an Arab party in Israel. He currently serves as Deputy Speaker of the Knesset. He was elected on a joint ticket with the United Arab List to serve in Israel's parliament, the Knesset.

Tibi was born in Tayibe, in 1958, at a time when all Palestinians areas of Israel were under military administration.

Tibi studied medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and graduated with honors in 1983. He began an internship as a physician at Hadassah Hospital in 1984, and met PLO leader Yasser Arafat in Tunis that same year.

Tibi served as a political advisor to Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat for several years, representing the Palestinians at the 1998 Wye River negotiations.
