Star's name not on list of presidential hopefuls

Hip-hop star Wyclef Jean was not on the list of approved candidates for Haiti's presidential election.

Reuters reported that a member of the country's provisional electoral council said he wasn't on the list of candidates who satisfy legal requirements to run.

The final and official list is to be published some time on Friday.

Reuters also said Haitian New Yorkers are wary of Jean's political ambitions.
