Wyclef Jean announced he is running for Haiti Presidency

The former Fugees member has recently made a huge decision in his life as he will be running for President in his country Haiti.

The current country’s president Rene Preval cannot seek the re-election under the country’s laws.

The artist will make the announcement officially on CNN’s Larry King Show.
In order to be able to run as a candidate for president, Jean would have to prove he has lived in Haiti for five years in a row and has not been a citizen of any other country.

The artist was born on the outskirts of the capital, Port-au-Prince, but was raised in Brooklyn in the US.

For those who have followed Jean’s career, this decision doesn’t come as a surprise, as the artist always wanted to be involved with humanitarian causes on Haiti, especially after the terrible earthquake stroke the island.
