Haiti - Politics : After 5 years of blocking the Senate votes the law on the FNE
The Draft Law on the Organization and Functioning of the National Fund for Education, created under President Martelly in May 2011 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-3034-haiti-education-launch-of-the-national-fund-for-education-fne-by-martelly-update-1h03pm.html was voted last Wednesday by the Senate after 5 years of blocking

Recall that the FNE had been ratified by the Chamber of Deputies 15 months after its creation (August 2012) and sent to the Senate for ratification in the same terms https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-12004-haiti-education-the-use-of-the-$220m-of-fne-still-blocked-by-the-senate.html . However, the majority opposition in the Senate blocked this ratification until the arrival of the new Moïse-Lafontant Government.

The FNE, an autonomous body of unlimited duration, will operate under the supervision of the Ministry of Education and will be managed by a Director General. It will be endowed with a Board of Directors of 7 members from the Ministries of Economy, National Education, Planning and MHAVE, the sector of teacher unions, the National Federation of Haitian Mayors ( FENAMH) and the human rights sector.

The FNE will manage financial resources from various known and future sources, enabling the development and continuation of the education program for children and ensuring access to universal schooling.

However, the Bill having been amended in the Senate to take account eplicitly of needs of disabled people, it will be resubmitted to Lower House (shuttle) to be ratified in the same terms, before being transmitted to the Executive for publication in the official newspaper "Le Moniteur".

This fund currently funded by the diaspora by telephone charges of US $ 0.05 on each incoming minute https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-2993-haiti-education-it-s-not-a-tax-but-a-surcharge-on-the-tariff.html amounted in March 2017 to more than 142 million US dollars (142,263,932.38) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20383-haiti-news-zapping-politics.html Note that this amount does not include the US $ 1.50 fee charged to the incoming and outgoing funds transfers that are collected by the Central Bank (BRH). Today, the amount of this levy could be around 189 million [Under all reserve and based on a HL estimate calculated from the only known amount reported by the BRH for the period from June 2011 to August 2012 and based on a constant linear progression]
