Wyclef Jean – Haiti’s next president?

4 August 2010 290 views No Comment

Former Fugee Wyclef Jean is expected to announce a run for the Haitian presidency on Thursday, according to CNN reports.

Throughout his career, the Haitian-born star has been extremely vocal in support of the poverty-stricken country.

In 2005, Jean established the Yéle Haiti Foundation, which helped raised millions of dollars in aid following  January’s 7.0 magnitude earthquake.  Haiti’s current President Rene Preval named him goodwill ambassador to the country in 2007.

Candidates have until August 7 to register for the November election.

Do you think Wyclef would make a good president for Haiti?
