Wyclef Jean Left off the List of Haiti's Presidential Candidates

Haiti Election 2010 - August 21 2010, 6:28 AM

Wyclef Jean's presidential ambitions may have hit a snag: The Haitian-American hip-hop star's name is not on the list of approved candidates for the upcoming election in his native country, according to Reuters.

Jean said in a blog posted at The Huffington Post: "Though I disagree with the ruling, I respectfully accept the committee's final decision, and I urge my supporters to do the same."

He urged supporters to respond "peacefully and responsibly to this disappointment."
