Aleksandrs Mirskis (Russian: Александр Мирский; Latvian: Aleksandrs Mirskis, born 20 March 1964 Vilnius) is a Latvian politician.

Mirskis was born in Vilnius. He is a graduate in civil engineering from the Polytechnic Institute in Kaunas (1986). Mirskis worked as a building project leader (1986 – 1989, 1990 – 1992), taking one year break for service in the Soviet Army as commander of a radiation reconnaissance unit. Upon ending his service, with the rank of first lieutenant, he resumed his work in construction.[1]

In 1992, Mirskis was made a technical director and seven years later became the general manager of a construction company. He retired from business to become an advisor to the mayor of Riga (2001–2005), later being elected to Saeima, the Latvian parliament (2006–2009).[1]

Since July 2009 he is serving as 1 of the 9 Latvian MEPs in the European parliament, affiliated with the Socialists and Democrats parliamentary group. Mirskis is a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and a substitute in the Committee on Regional Development.
