Marc Bazin died earlier this morning, his family told the Miami Herald.

Marc Louis Bazin was Haiti's Finance Ministar under Jean-Claude Duvalier.

Marc Bazin was also a former World Bank official and favorite candidate of the George H.W. Bush Administration and the borgeoisie in the 1990 Haiti presidential elections.

The Herald also reported that Marc Bazin "worried about the future of the country, rebuilding education, the neglect of the middle class, the 1.5 million living in tent cities and the opposition's ongoing push to remove Préval from office."

May he rest in peace

Wether dead or not we must still speak the truth about an opportunist who sought to change his stripes after the regime he served was toppled.

We must take note of the perpetual candidate, the man who assisted a band of armed thugs rise to power for the sake of ascending to a politcal office.

Marc Bazin's legacy is that of a man who if he had not died would without doubt have been running for the November 28 presidential election.

He was really good at finance.

Unfortunately the political system of haiti has swallowed him.He made mistakes as everyone has, but most importantly is what was learned from the mistakes.

May he
