Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri (Balochi: نواب خیر بخش مری) was a Pakistani politician from Balochistan.

Khair Bakhsh Marri had received his early education in Kohlu and higher education from Aitchison College, Lahore. Khair Bakhsh Marri had six sons — Balach Marri, Changez Marri, Hyrbyair Marri, Ghazan Marri, Hamza Marri and Mehran Marri.

Khair Bakhsh Marri was also head of the Marri tribe. Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri died at a Karachi hospital on June 2014 after long illness.[1]

Nawab Sahib, labelled as obstinate and haughty by his opponents, was not an irrational leader. He had an excellent command of western politics as well as mastery over Marxist theory. He admired Chairman Mao Zedong but was particularly fond of Vladimir Lenin.On the eve of the 1970 elections, Nawab Sahib was the Balochistan chief of the leftist National Awami Party (NAP). He won the National Assembly (NA) elections from Quetta-Chaghai, securing over 100,000 votes — a feat never repeated since in Balochistan[2]
