Nyamko Ana Sabuni (born 31 March 1969) is the Swedish Minister for Integration and Gender Equality. A member of the Liberal People’s Party, Sabuni has been a member of the Riksdag (Parliament) since 2002 and a member of the party board since 2004.

As an opposition politician, Sabuni proposed banning the veil for girls under the age of 15. She proposed that schoolgirls undergo compulsory medical examinations to check for evidence of genital mutilation. She denounced what she called the “honor culture” of some immigrant groups, proposed outlawing arranged marriages and called for an end to state funding of religious schools.
