wyclef president haiti

Wyclef Jean is considering a run for president of Haiti but has not decided whether to seek a five-year term as leader of the quake-ravaged nation, the musician’s family said Monday. There have been rumors for some time the Haitian-born entertainer might enter the 2010 presidential contest, ever since his 2007 appointment as ambassador-at-large for the Caribbean nation by President Rene Preval, who cannot seek re-election.

In a statement e-mailed to reporters, the family said, “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 … If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.”

The letter was signed “The Jean Family.” A spokeswoman for the musician confirmed the message’s authenticity. Jean, 37, was born on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince but left the hemisphere’s poorest country as a child and grew up in New York City’s borough of Brooklyn.

He told The Associated Press in a recent interview he intended to be involved in the Nov. 28 election, but not necessarily as a candidate. “Do I have political intentions? At this time no. But what I do have is a movement – it’s called Face a Face, ‘Face to Face’,” Jean said. “The youth population … we are going to encourage them to vote.”

    Haitians should definitely think twice about that. You might want to figure out what’s going on with that YELE foundation and where that money went and where it is going. But then again a corrupt president wouldnt be anything new. May God bless you Haiti…

  • I-See-See

    Haitians need to think about this carefully. After hearing rumors about him not issuing the money is non-profit collected has me hesitant. I think the Haitians should elect a strong Haitian who currently lives in the country and was there when the quake came

  • AHHHHHHHHHHHHHSHADDAAAP!!!

    The scary thing is I think those people would vote him into office.

    I learned from a former boss that you should NEVER give money to charity. You should always give objects that would have a low resale value. I.E. When the earthquake happend – a trip was made to Old Navy for clothes and shoes. Any money that you give to the United Way or any other crooked org. (like YELE) will only end up in some greedy person’s pocket.

    I hope that Haiti makes the right decision, because Wyclef is a con-man and a thief (like all the others) and he wants to get in based on popularity, without any education or knowledge of how the law or politics work.

    I’ll keep Haiti in my prayers.

  • tg

    He’s as good as anyone else who has been President of Haiti. At least he wants to “TRY” to make a change in the country. Look at America – we had an ACTOR running the country. And he did some pretty good acting, too, because he got our votes. So nothing is impossible. And the people over in Haiti like him, better than the Politians, who do NOTHING for them.
