Høgni Karsten Hoydal (born 28 March 1966), commonly called Høgni Hoydal, is a Faroese politician currently serving as member of the Faroese Parliament as well as the Danish one. Høgni Hoydal brought the Republican Party back up from 4 MP's to 8 in the 1998 elections and into government, due to popular opinion at the time. Høgni Hoydal became Minister of Justice and deputy Prime Minister. In 2008, Hoydal assumed the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs.

The government coalition between the Republican Party, the People's Party and the Independence Party agreed on a roadmap towards independence and initiated negotiations with the Government of Denmark. The negotiations, however, broke down and the Faroese coalition started going on a path towards greater autonomy by taking over the responsibility of matters taken care of by Denmark until then.

The coalition stayed in power after the parliamentary elections in 2002 and brought one more political Party into the coalition and government. This coalition, however, broke down on 5 December 2003 and new elections held. After these elections another coalition was formed leaving the Republican Party in opposition.

In 2001, he was elected as one of the two Faroese members of the Danish Folketing. He was re-elected in 2005 and re-elected again in 2007.

Høgni Hoydal was a reporter of the Faroese national television station, Sjónvarp Føroya, for some years prior to his election to the Faroese parliament in 1998.
