Smarck Michel, the former Prime Minister of Haiti, has died. The 75-year old succumbed to brain cancer, according to his son Kenneth. Michel started his career as Haitian Prime Minister in 1994 after the US restored Jean-Bertrand Aristide to power. Aristide had been forced out of the presidency in 1991 during a military coupe.
Aristide’s reputation as a populist liberal was countered by Michel’s reputation as a businessman, which made the Haitian middle and upper class more comfortable. Michel resigned a year later after he was opposed on his economic plans, which included privatization, to which many Haitians were against.
