Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa (Arabic: خليفة بن سلمان آل خليفة‎) (24 November 1935 – 11 November 2020) was a Bahraini royal and politician who had served as the Prime Minister of Bahrain since 1970, taking office over a year before Bahrain's independence on 15 August 1971. He was the longest-serving Prime Minister of any government in the world. Under the 2002 Constitution he lost some of his powers, with the King now having the authority to appoint and (along with the Bahraini parliament) dismiss ministers. He was also the paternal uncle of the reigning King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and granduncle of the Crown Prince Salman, since he was the younger brother of the former Emir Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa.
