Ezekiel Alebua (born 1947) was the third Prime Minister of the Solomon Islands from 1 December 1986 - 28 March 1989.[1] He was the foreign minister of that country from 1981 to 1982. Alebua was the premier of Guadalcanal province from 1998 to 2003, and antagonized some people in that area for not supporting moves to declare that province independent.[2]

He was wounded in an assassination attempt by Harold Keke's group on June 1, 2001. During his prominence in national politics during the 1980s, Alebua was a member of the conservative Solomon Islands United Party.[3]
