1 min read



The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recommended Haiti raise fuel prices by up to 50 percent. It was a series of proposals agreed upon between the IMF and government in February with the intent to improve the economy.

The proposal had triggered four days of violent protests.

The government agreed to eliminate fuel subsidies in return for more IMF assistance but scrapped the plan following the unrest.

Haiti’s prime minister is under pressure to resign, with a vote of no confidence scheduled for the weekend.

Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from the capital, Port-au-Prince.
