When Haitians become citizens abroad, they officially lose their citizenship in Haiti. Wyclef wants to change this law because he believes, people who leave Haiti should continue to be a part of the decisions made in their native country.
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Hip-hop artist and presidential candidate Wyclef Jean says that if he is elected he will work to change Haiti’s constitution to allow dual citizenship and give Haitians living abroad the right to vote.
The former Fugees frontman said Haitians abroad “should have the right to vote in their country,” especially since they send billions in remittances to family members.
Currently, Haitians who emigrate can only hold citizenship in one country and must renounce their Haitian citizenship if they become citizens of another.
Wyclef, who was born in Haiti but raised in New York, spoke to The AP last night at a Port-au-Prince airport.
He was arriving in Haiti after a concert in Belgium.
Although many countries already have dual citizenship for it’s citizens, it’s interesting that this is one of the first things he wants to address publicly. Uh.. Wyclef? This sounds all good and everything but people can’t eat votes. Any plans for rebuilding the nation?
