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.
