FactFormer President of Haiti (1991),(1994-1996) and (2001-2004), ousted in two coups d'état (1991,2004). The American government ruled that the years of military government between 1991 and 1994 would count as part of his term, forcing him to step down after only two years as he was not permitted to run for a second consecutive term. His second term was also interrupted by a putsch and he was forced into exile by the American military. When he could not run, René Préval was elected president (1996, 2005).


Jean-Bertrand Aristide is a Haitian politician who served as Haiti’s first democratically elected president. He was born on July 15, 1953, in Port-Salut, Haiti, to a family of modest means. His father was a carpenter and his mother was a homemaker. He has six siblings. Aristide was educated by Catholic priests at a local seminary. He later studied psychology and philosophy at the State University of Haiti and the Sorbonne in Paris.

Aristide became a Catholic priest in 1982 and was an outspoken critic of the Haitian government’s human rights abuses. He was forced into exile in 1988 but returned to Haiti in 1991 to lead the country’s first democratically elected government. Aristide was overthrown in a military coup in 2004 but returned to Haiti in 2011 to serve as its president once again.

Aristide is married to Mildred Trouillot Aristide and has three children. His net worth is estimated to be $2 million.
