The final list of approved candidates for the Haitian presidential election scheduled for November has been announced, but Wyclef Jean, the hip-hop artist, has been denied eligibility.
Jean has been criticised for a lack of political experience and a vague platform. He said on Saturday that he accepts the decision of the electoral council and is urging his supporters to do the same.
But many Haitians have marched through the streets in protest over Jean's disqualification. Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital.
