Wyclef Jean is adamant he is still in the running for the Haiti presidency, dismissing a spate of rumours he has been booted out of the race ahead of the official candidacy announcement.
The former Fugees frontman is planning to run for office in his homeland, but is waiting for his candidacy to be approved by officials in Haiti, who have to decide whether he meets the electoral criteria.
The announcement was due on Tuesday (17Aug10), but was delayed until Friday (20Aug10) and rumours have been swirling ahead of the deadline, suggesting Jean has already been struck from the running list.
But speaking on Larry King Live, the hip-hop star is adamant the list is fake and he has met the guidelines by having Haitian residency for the past five years - insisting he is not out of the race just yet.
He tells the veteran newsman, "We have had residence in Haiti for five years, more than five years, Larry... I wanted to clarify a rumour that came out on Reuters that said the list for the candidates came out and Wyclef's name was not on it. That is not true. The list is supposed to come out (on Friday)."
