Sir Nicholas Alexander Brathwaite OBE (8 July 1925 - 28 October 2016) was the prime minister of Grenada from 1983 to 1984 and from 1990 to 1995.[2]

Brathwaite was born in Carriacou, Grenada. Following the 1983 invasion of Grenada, Brathwaite, a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), was appointed by Governor-General Sir Paul Scoon to reestablish the Grenadian government. Brathwaite became prime minister and chairman of the advisory council in December 1983, when American troops withdrew. He led Grenada's return to democracy, and served as prime minister for a year, until his party lost the December 1984 elections. The NDC won the 1990 elections,[3] and he served as prime minister again from March 1990 to February 1995. He also held the portfolio of finance minister. He also served as foreign minister during some of that time. He resigned shortly before the 1995 elections, which the NDC lost.

He was appointed an OBE in 1975 and was knighted in 1995. He died on 28 October 2016 at the age of 91.[4]
