Wyclef Jean in Hiding, Candidacy in Jeopardy


Wyclef Jean’s Haitian presidential bid may be in jeopardy.

The CEP, which is the commission that makes rulings on who is allowed to run for the presidency in the country, announced that they are postponing their decisions on candidates—initially slated to be released Tuesday—until Friday. The main hiccup for Jean surrounds residency requirements, as the Haitian Constitution calls for candidates to have lived in the country for five consecutive years prior to the election. However, he has been in the United States for much of that time.

In addition to complications with his candidacy, ‘Clef may be facing problems concerning his safety. He told the Associated Press via e-mail that he had received threats and, as a result, was in hiding in his native Haiti.

As previously reported, Wyclef announced his candidacy earlier this month. He is one of over 30 individuals who filed to run for presidency of the Caribbean country. —Adam Fleischer

    he has no idea the how dirty the game of politics is.

    “The CEP, which is the commission that makes rulings on who is allowed to run for the presidency in the country, announced that they are postponing their decisions on candidates—initially slated to be released Tuesday—until Friday.”

    If they get to decide who gets to run, then im sure they have influence on who wins.

    PEACE,

    The CEP if full of shit; they do not want the results to come out for fear that might ruin the Baccalaureate exams (End of the classical secondary study ex. part I ); Homie isn’t smart enough, this system you have to infiltrate and destroy it from within. The rich folks/mulatoes (wahtever the fuck that is) are dummies, really, dummies and they are so corrupt and promote corruption, they feel if they can’t buy you then you are a threat. The thing is to get their resopect is to show and prove that you can go at them HARD, no holdsbarred, all or nothing. Wow, and for someone claiming hood stripes an posing with fake/wannabe gangsters. Stop feeding them youths that garabage, you lack the minerals….

    PEACE

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
