Wyclef Jean…For President?

By on 27 July, 2010

Wyclef Jean is apparently reconsidering running for president of his devastated homeland HAITI, according to his charitable organisation.

The former Fugees star has been instrumental in ensuring the Haitians left homeless by the massive earthquake in January this year have aid, and has built temporary shelters through his Yele Haiti foundation.

His dedication and service prompted many to call for him to step into politics, but he initially shrugged off the idea, saying:

“If I take a job being a president, I can’t do as much as I’m doing for my country.”

However, according to CNN, the star has filled out the relevant paperwork in case he wants to put himself forward as a presidential candidate in the 2010 elections. But a statement from his foundation adds that Jean is yet to come to a final decision:

“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.

“At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president. If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.”
