There are many requirements to run for President of Haiti. Apparently, Wyclef  is missing a very important one. Will this stop his Presidential Campaign?

Haiti’s electoral commission said late Tuesday that it was postponing its ruling on who will be allowed to run for president in November elections, leaving Wyclef Jean’s candidacy in limbo.

A statement from the commission, known as the CEP, said it would postpone the announcement until Friday.

Here’s where the controversy all started:
