Wyclef Jean Reportedly Ineligible To Run For President of Haiti
Despite an optimistic morning for ‘Clef, an anonymous council official told Reuters that he did meet legal requirements to run for President.
Although earlier today Wyclef Jean told the Associated Press that he had a positive meeting with the current President of Haiti, authorities in the Caribbean country made a decision to deny his run for President. Yesterday, the former Fugees member was reportedly in hiding, awaiting this Friday’s decision on eligibility.
Wyclef was not included on the list that was released today, which contains the candidates that meet the legal requirements to run in the November election. According to a council official who spoke with Reuters, Jean’s candidacy did not meet several legal requirements. The announcement will formally be stated Friday (August 20) to the public.
