World Bank development economist and Prime Minister Marc Luis Bazin

Here is a picture of the former World Bank development economist and Prime Minister Marc Luis Bazin

In Haiti, Marc Louis Bazin has somewhat of a reputation of being always the bridesmaid. He's been in the race for President of the country many times for nearly a quarter of a century but has yet to achieve the post. Despite this, Bazin is a well-respected figure in Haitian society and built a reputation even greater for being very vocal against the corruption of the Duvalier regime.

Looking at his track record, the one-time development economist for the World Bank turned finance and economy minister has forged a trail few others have, being one of the only almost permanent fixtures on the Haitian political scene. He ran for president first after returning from the exile imposed on him by his prime minister, Jean-Claude Duvalier. At the time he seemed in the perfect spot for the win, having been exiled by the despotic ruler after he publicly criticized the corruption of the administration.
