Wyclef ends his presidential campaign (the statement)

Wyclef Jean has decided to end his campaign for President of Haiti.  Below find the statement he released explaining why and what he plans to do next…

 

“After weeks of quiet but painstaking reflection with my wife and daughter, I have chosen to end my bid for the presidency of Haiti.

 

This was not an easy conclusion to reach; but it is one that was thoughtfully made, taking into account many, many competing factors and weighing the course that will be advance the healing of the country and help it find the quickest path for recovery.

 

Some battles are best fought off the field, and that is where we take this now,

 

It’s not about my candidacy – this appeal was meant to address the shortcomings of the process for every Haitian.

 

Though my run for the presidency was cut short, in this way, I feel it was not in vain; it’s something we can use to improve conditions for my Haitian brothers and sisters.

 

About my movement:

 

My position on Haiti has not changed. My beloved country will always be a priority for me.

 

It is very important that people realise that my decision to stop the presidential bid does not alter my feelings: I will never stop fighting for my country, my people and any unfairness I see towards Haiti. AFACeAFACe will continue to report on the conditions in Haiti and will work towards supporting justice and equality on all fronts and wherever they are.”
