Ivan Ribar (born on 21 January 1881, in Vukmanić, Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia, Austria-Hungary; died on 11 June 1968, Zagreb, SR Croatia, SFR Yugoslavia), was a Yugoslav politician of Croatian descent.

Ribar was born in Vukmanić near Karlovac. He had a PhD in law. In politics, Ribar was:

  • President of the Royal Parliamentary Assembly, 1920 - 1922
  • President of Executive Committee, Anti-Fascist Council of People's Liberation of Yugoslavia, 26 Oct 1942 - 4 Dec 1943
  • Chairman of the Presidium of the Provisional People's Assembly, 4 Dec 1943 - 5 Mar 1945
  • Chairman of the Presidium of the National Assembly, 2 Dec 1945 - 14 Jan 1953

Ivan Ribar lost his entire family during World War II: two sons Jurica Ribar and Ivo Lola Ribar, as well as his wife Tonica. Both sons fought for the Partisans against the Italian Fascists. Ivo Lola Ribar, his younger son, was in charge of the League of Young Communists of Yugoslavia (SKOJ) during the war, and was proclaimed posthumously a People's Hero of Yugoslavia.

Ivan Ribar died in Zagreb at the age of 87.
