Károly Peyer (9 May 1881 – 25 October 1956) was a Hungarian politician, who served as Interior Minister for six days during the end of the Hungarian Soviet Republic. After that he was the Minister of Work in the István Friedrich's and the Károly Huszár's cabinet. He took part in the consolidation policy of István Bethlen in 1921: as the leader of the main opposition party (social democrats) he compromised with the Prime Minister (Bethlen-Peyer Pact). That is why Peyer was called "betrayer of the left-wing" by the communists.

In 1947 Peyer was excluded from his party, so he joined to the Hungarian Radical Party, which organised against the communist rule. Soonly Peyer emigrated to the United States. In the next year the People's Tribune sentenced to 8 years.
