Manuel Solís Palma 3 December 1917 in Los Santos Province – 6 November 2009 was the acting president of Panama from 26 February 1988 to 1 September 1989, under the military rule of Manuel Noriega He served as education minister in several administrations, and worked on the 1968 presidential campaign of Arnulfo Arias Madrid

In February 1988, Noriega promoted Solís from education minister to president after the firing of president Eric Arturo Delvalle The US administration of president Ronald Reagan refused to recognize Solís or the diplomats representing him as legitimate In May, the administration offered a deal in which Noriega would leave office in exchange for the US dropping drug charges against him; however, the Panamanian military rejected the terms, which gave no guarantee that Solís would retain power Solís served until 1 September 1989, shortly before the US invasion of Panama which deposed Noriega He was later described as one of a series of Noriega's puppet rulers, nicknamed the "Kleenex presidents" in Panama due to their "disposability" In 1994, he was pardoned by President Guillermo Endara for any crimes committed during the Noriega years

In the administration of Martín Torrijos 2004–2009, Solís served again as education minister

He died on 6 November 2009 from pulmonary edema in Panama City
