Julio Antonio Miranda (born October 17, 1946) is an Argentine politician and a member of the Justicialist Party. He is a former Senator for Tucumán Province and was part of the majority Front for Victory parliamentary group. Previously he has been governor of Tucumán and national Senator before being elected to this office

Born in the village of Manuel García Fernández, in Leales Department, Tucumán, Miranda completed the 4th grade (half) of elementary school.[1] Miranda's political career began as trade union man, representing the State Oil Workers Trade Union (SUPE). He was elected a Senator in 1992 by the Tucuman province legislature. In 1999, Miranda was elected Governor of Tucumán by a narrow margin (6,800 votes) defeating the son of the incumbent governor Antonio Domingo Bussi. His four years saw considerable controversy and fierce opposition from the Republican Force Tucumán party led by Antonio Bussi and his son, Ricardo. At the end of his term in 2003, Miranda stood again for the Senate. His party's candidate, José Alperovich, beat the younger Bussi for the governorship.

From 1997 to 1999, Miranda was President of the soccer club Club Atlético Tucumán.
