Sorin Frunzăverde (born 26 April 1960) is a Romanian politician, a Member of the European Parliament since 10 December 2007, and leader of the Romanian members of the European People's Party–European Democrats.

He has twice served as Minister of National Defense. The first appointment, from 13 March 2000 to 28 December 2000, came when President Emil Constantinescu chose him to replace defence minister Viktor Babiuc, who had left the Democratic Party but refused to leave the ministerial post.
