Michiel Godfried "Mike" Eman (born September 1, 1961) is an Aruban politician who is the 5th Prime Minister of Aruba and the current leader of the Aruban People's Party (AVP) (Arubaanse Volkspartij / Partido di Pueblo Arubano), which holds the new majority in the Aruban Estates as a result of the seventh Aruban General Elections held on 25 September 2009. His political career began in 2001, but Eman has been involved in politics in one way or another since his childhood. His grandfather, father and brother were all prominent politicians in their time, with Henny Eman having preceded him in service (twice) as Prime Minister of Aruba, including as the first to ever hold the office after Aruba's status aparte in January 1986.

He began his formal political career in September 2001 when he appeared 3rd on the list of the AVP. The 2001 elections did not go in favor of the AVP causing the party to lose 4 seats in the parliament. This led to the decision of the AVP leader, Tico Croes, to relinquish his leadership. The leadership was handed over to ex-minister of Justice, Pedro E. (Eddy) Croes. Mike Eman became the vice-president of the party and the leader of the AVP faction in the Parliament of Aruba. In 2003, Eman was elected leader of the AVP. After the 2005 elections, the AVP regained 2 seats, and Eman emerged as the de facto vote getter of the elections, with more than 12% of the votes to his name.
