Wyclef Jean Considering Presidential Run In Haiti
Several reports made this week have revealed that musician/philanthropist Wyclef Jean may possibly be considering running for president in his native country of Haiti.
Throughout his career Wyclef has worked on raising awareness of various issues in Haiti. He became one of Haiti’s strongest supporters following the earthquake that struck the country earlier this year.
While Wyclef did recently share with CNN that he has filled out all the paperwork required to enter the presidential race, a statement made by Yele Haiti revealed that Wyclef has yet to make a decision on whether or not he will run.
“Wyclef’s commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward,” read a statement made by Wyclef’s organization, Yele Haiti. “At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president.”
Wyclef has yet to respond publicly to reports of his possible presidential run. The deadline for candidates to declare themselves in the presidential race is August 7.
