Wyclef rejected from presidential bid

Politics got a bit more boring again.

The news that Wycelf Jean would try and run for president of Haiti divided people between those who thought a high profile name would attract foreign investment and media pressure, versus those who felt it was simply a rap star’s ego trip. One thing’s for sure: it would have been fascinating. Unfortunately, Wyclef has been rejected from standing by the electoral commission for failing to meet entry requirements, including having lived in Haiti for the past five years. On the plus side, at least he won’t have to worry about those death threats anymore. On the down side, the media might forget Haiti exists again.
