Wyclef Not Allowed To Appeal Ruling, Official Says

Though the musician said he would appeal the ruling barring him from running for president of Haiti, a legal department official in the country’s electoral council made it abundantly clear Tuesday night that Jean's hopes are completely extinguished. The lawyer told Reuters that Haiti’s electoral law says that council decisions are final, meaning the ruling cannot be appealed. “…There is absolutely no possibility for Wyclef Jean to be added to the list of candidates approved to run in the next presidential elections… So it’s over,” the official said. Somehow we don't think Wyclef is going to calmly accept this. [EW]
