Admiral José Baptista Pinheiro de Azevedo, GCL (Portuguese pronunciation: [?u'z? ba'ti?t? pi'j?u d? ?z?'vedu]; 5 June 1917 - 10 August 1983) was a Portuguese political figure, reformer and revolutionary. He helped overthrow Marcelo Caetano in 1974. He served as the 104th Prime Minister of Portugal between 19 September 1975 and 23 June 1976. He ran for president in 1976, and lost.

Pinheiro de Azevedo was born on June 5, 1917 in Luanda, but moved to Portugal several years later. In the 1960s, he joined the Movement for Democratic Unity and was a supporter of the Presidential candidacies of José Norton de Matos, Manuel Quintão Meireles and Humberto Delgado.

Pinheiro de Azevedo served in the Portuguese Colonial War, as an admiral in charge of the maritime defense of Angola.

After the Revolution of April 25, 1974, he was appointed to the National Salvation Junta, and was committed to the cause of democratization in Portugal.

On August 29, 1975 he became Prime Minister of the Sixth Provisional Government replacing ousted Prime Minister Vasco Gonçalves.

At the end of his tenure as Prime Minister, he was replaced temporarily between June 23 and July 23, 1976, by Vasco Almeida e Costa, Minister of Internal Administration.

In 1976, Pinheiro de Azevedo ran as an independent for the Portuguese presidency.
