Wyclef Will Be In Haiti For Election

Grammy Award-winning Haitian-born Hip hop star Wyclef Jean is set to be in Haiti for the election next week, the Caribbean World News Site reports..

The singer, whose bid to run for President of Haiti was squashed by the country`s election commission, is set to fly in to Haiti as Haitians gear up to vote on Nov. 28th.

And despite some critics who believe the election should be postponed as the country deals with the latest crisis of cholera, Jean told the Toronto Sun that he believes Haitians are `definitely looking towards the election` and will turn out to vote.

`The epidemic won`t incite people not to vote. But it made them realize a lot of money is being spent on the wrong things instead of helping fight cholera,` he was quoted as saying.

Four of the 19 candidates vying to replace President René Préval have said the election should be postponed to allow authorities to focus on the cholera outbreak, but the majority of the candidates have said the election should move forward.
