Jean-Bertrand Aristide is a former priest and liberation theologist who rose to become Haiti’s first democratically elected president in 1991, but was overthrown in a coup later that year. He returned to power from 1994 to 1996, won another election amid boycotts in 2000 and was then ousted again four years later.
