 In this paper, we derived probability density function (pdf) for the order statistics from eponential power distribution (EPD). The distribution is flexible at the tail region, because of the presence of shape parameter, which regulates the thickness of the tail. The first moment of the obtained distribution of the order statistics from EPD is presented as well as other measures of central tendencies. This results generalized the results on order statistics from the Laplace distribution and also the results obtained by Arnold, Balakrishnan and Nagaraja on order statistics from normal distribution.
