Former Haitian Prime Minister Smarck Michel has died.
He was 75.
Kenneth Michel says his father died Saturday morning at home from a brain tumor.
Smarck Michel became prime minister in 1994 just after the United States restored Jean-Bertrand Aristide to the presidency following a three-year exile.
Aristide's first term was cut short in 1991 when the army ousted him in a coup.
He was also exiled during his second presidential term, in 2004.
Aristide's choice of Michel as prime minister was seen an effort to placate many in Haiti's middle and upper classes who felt threatened by the return of the left-leaning president.
Michel resigned almost a year later over widespread opposition to his economic reform plans.
