Registration has closed for Haiti's upcoming presidential election. Among those in the running for the country's top job is Haitian-born hip-hop artist Wyclef Jean.

Many have critcissed Jean for his decision to run for president of Haiti, including Hollywood Actor Sean Penn, who's done relief work in Haiti. Now Jean's former Fugees bandmate, Pras Michel, has also weighed in.

He told Al Jazeera he will not back Jean because he lacks a definitive plan to govern the island nation.
