Haiti - NOTICE : Haiti will not change to daylight saving time this year
Unlike recent years, setting the clocks change on the second Sunday of March (Presidential Decree of 7 March 2012), to enjoy the longest day in summer and reduce energy consumption in the country during the summer season ; the Presidency Communication Office informs the general population "that no by season time change is planned for this year.

So, National time will neither forward or back Sunday, March 13, 2016.
The Presidential Communications Office invites the public to consider this provision to have no setbacks in daily activities."

Note that the time changes were applied in Haiti from 1983 to 1997; from 2005 to 2006; and from 2012 to 2015. Changes in hours, besides that that is the subject of this noticewere canceled in 2 time in 1997 and 2006 (under the Préval regime)...

A decision by the interim presidency, without explanation, that will set Haiti on Sunday from one of the few countries in the world to have this time configuration (14 country/zones only). Moreover, this decision will require adjustments in the field of broadcasting and telecommunications. To this end, the National Council of Telecommunications (CONATEL) in a statement "calls upon all radio broadcasting and telephony operators, all any telecommunications services to take all necessary steps to ensure that their systems do not pass the summer time this year. This application is produced right now in order to give them time to reprogram their equipment."
