Abel Nazaire, the new Minister of Youth, Sports and Civic Action (MJSAC) has always remained a defender of the cause for the youth. He believes if the youths are placed properly at the center of all activities, it could uplift the socio-economic conditions of the nation. He is of opinion that the country should invest heavily on youth. He would take definite steps to increase the budget allocation to his ministry (MJSAC) while drafting the amended budget. During the previous fiscal year only 667 million gourdes (0.5%) were allocated. The new minister has requested another 500 million gourdes for the period April-June 2016. Abel Nazaire has replaced the outgoing Minister Jimmy Albert, who held the post for past 14 months.

Ernst 'ZeNono' Jean-Baptiste wants to replace Sepp Blatter as head of FIFA

Ernst 'ZeNono' Jean-Baptiste wants to replace Sepp Blatter as head of FIFA

Ernst "ZeNono' Jean-Baptiste (59), a soccer legend who has coached and represented Haitian national football, a former player of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers believes that the way the world soccer governing body 'FIFA' is conducting its business is not fair; most of the things are done behind the close door; it is needed to be cleansed. On September 29, at the Central Broward Stadium in the presence of several Haitian dignitaries, including former Prime Minister Gerard Latortue while launching his campaign "For the Purity of the Game'' to oust the FIFA President Sepp Blatter and replace himself in his seat, he has announced his agenda to the press. If he wins the February 26 election, he would ensure a fairer distribution of funds, more diversity in the leadership, bring transparency in the game, there will be more involvement of former players, and less bureaucracy in the management.
