Ezekiel Anisi (1 September 1988 – 24 May 2017) was a Papua New Guinean politician.[1] He was a member of the National Parliament of Papua New Guinea from August until October 2012, when he was unseated by the National Court, and from a December 2013 by-election until his death, representing the electorate of Ambunti-Dreikikir Open in East Sepik Province. He was the youngest MP in Papua New Guinea.[2]

Anisi died on 24 May 2017 from possible cardiac arrest at a guesthouse in Port Moresby only weeks before the 2017 general election, aged 28.[3]
