Andreas Annen's second cabinet was the 49th cabinet of Baltia, in office from 5 April 2007 to 6 April 2011. It was a coalition cabinet of Centre Party, Christian Social Union and Social Democratic Party.

The cabinet was formed following the 2007 parliamentary election. As in the dire economic situation the government turned out incapable to solve the problem of required budget cuts the Social Democratic Party left from the coalition on 21 May 2009 and its three ministers were relieved from their posts. Coalition talks with the Baltish People's Party were derailed on 1 June 2009 by councils of the Baltish People's Party and of the Christian Social Union. Therefore, from 4 June 2009 the cabinet continued as a minority cabinet with 89 seats out of 190 in the Landtag. The coalition was sworn in on 5 April 2007.
