Musician Wyclef Jean is considering to run for president in Haiti’s next election, but has not yet decided whether or not he will seek a five-year term as leader of the country, his family said in a statement. Jean, 37, was born on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince but moved to Brooklyn, NY, as a child. Rumours have been circulating about Jean’s possible presidential run since his 2007 appointment as ambassador-at-large for the Caribbean nation by President René Préval, who cannot seek re-election. To enter the race, Jean would have to prove he has resided in Haiti for five consecutive years, own property in the country and have never been a citizen of any country other than Haiti. Dozens of candidates are expected to declare their candidacy by the August 7 deadline, and whoever wins will face the task of rebuilding the country devastated by the recent earthquake and decades of financial instability.
