Sir Arnold Amet is a Papua New Guinean politician.

He was the Governor of Madang Province from November 2007 to December 2010, whereupon he resigned the position to be appointed Minister for Justice and Attorney General in Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare's Cabinet. He held these positions until the government was brought down by a parliamentary motion of no confidence in August 2011, whereupon he was relegated to the Opposition benches.

He is a member of the National Parliament of Papua New Guinea, having been elected for the Madang Provincial Seat in the 2007 general election.

Sir Arnold has also been Chief Justice of Papua New Guinea, Chairman of the Manam Humanitarian Committee, chair of the Commonwealth Observer Group for Solomon Islands' elections, and a member of the international Eminent Persons Group tasked with assessing the political and human rights situation in Fiji following its 2006 military coup.

Pacific Magazine in 2008 described Sir Arnold as "the likely successor of Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare when 'The Chief' steps down as head of the governing National Alliance Party."
