Amin Kamel Al-Qifiri (born 19 August 1960) is a Koy and former Irvadi politican, currently serving as the Third Vice Chairman of the ruling Koy Socialist Revolutionary Party and as the President of the Irvadi Autonomous Socialist Republic, a provincial-level administrative region established in Koyro for Irvadi refugees. He also serves on the Commission for Foreign Enlightenment and Global Liberation, as an expert for the Nautasia continent.

He was previously the de-facto leader of Irvadistan before his ousting in during the 2017 Irvadi coup d'état. He exercised political control during his 19-year reign through his Chairmanship of the National Council for Salvation, which became the supreme political power in Irvadistan following the 1998 Irvadi coup d'état, orchestrated by Kamel and his close associates.

His early successes included kickstarting a period of revival for the malignant Irvadi economy as well as the reestablishment of diplomatic ties to Koyro, previously Irvadistan's most important ally. The establishment of a Koy-trained intelligence service initially led to an overall decline in religious and ethnic violence, as well as the suppression of Islamic Collectivst movements. Thanks to the resurgent economy and Koy investment Kamel was able to reestablish agricultural subsidies and numerous social welfare programs which had been abolished by the civilian government, a move that won him widespread popular support.

Early on his regime was not without criticism. His junta received widespread condemnation from ....... for what was described as an "unlawful seizure of power from civilian authorities", overall corruption increased with Kamel personally appointing family members, as well as those of the larger Al-Qifiri tribe to prominent positions in national industries, the military and public offices to cement his own position. The state-owned oil industry became known as a particularly profitable fiefdom.

As years progressed reports of forced disappearance, public executions and the widespread use of concentration camps became more and more prevalent, with many non-governmental organisations, such as the Esquarian Human Rights Monitor and Irvadi Observatory of Human Rights vocally condemning the increasingly dire human rights situation in Irvadistan. The regime was accused of targeting the Sunni population at large with it's crackdown on religious extremist organisations.

Kamel was accused of fostering a cult of personality around himself beginning in the early 2000s.

Ultimately Kamel's government proved unable to effectively deal with religious extremist organisations, most notably the Front for Liberation and Jihad. A largely sectarian conflict errupted in 2011 which resulted in rebel organisations, predominately Sunni in religious practice, seizing control of vast swathes of the country. As the war progressed and Koy military presence became more prevalent the regime was accused of being little more than a client of Ansyu
