Wyclef Ruling Is Final
He definitely won’t be running to be President of Haiti…
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 15:31
Wyclef Jean has been ruled out of the Haiti Presidential race for good, after the country’s electoral commission said their decision was ‘final’.
Earlier this week the former Fugees frontman was told that he was ineligible to stand because he had not lived in the troubled country for the past five years.
Wyclef said he would fight the ruling, writing on Twitter last Sunday: “Tomorrow our Lawyers are appealing the decision of the CEP. We have met all the requirements set by the laws. And the law must be Respected.”
Now though Samuel Pierre from the Haiti electoral council has said rules state that no appeals are possible.
He said: "Therefore, there is absolutely no possibility for Wyclef Jean to be added to the list of candidates approved to run in the next presidential elections. So it's over.”
