Wyclef Denied Run For President Of Haiti

Wyclef Jean's name has not been included on a list of approved presidential candidates for his native Haiti.

The entertainer-turned-politician sought to run for presidency and announced with much international fanfare. Jean needed to prove that he was a resident of Haiti, one of the requirements for the high office of the embattled land.

A list was released today and it included dozens of candidates, but not Jean says news service Reuters.

Earlier this week, the mega star had revealed that he was receiving death threats from those that opposed his looming campaign. Earlier Thursday, he met with the current president of Haiti and told the Associated Press the meeting was positive.
