London, Aug 25 (ANI): Haitian musician Wyclef Jean, who is looking towards a political career, has learned he can’t appeal a decision that has restricted him from taking part in his native Haiti’s presidential race later this year.

The country’s electoral council officials previously disqualified the hip-hop star because he didn’t meet residence requirements, reports the Daily Express.

Jean initially accepted the ruling, but later launched an attack on lawmakers branding their decision to stop him from adding his name to the ballot politically motivated.

The ‘Gone ‘Til November’ hitmaker insisted he would appeal the decision, but the ruling is final and cannot be appealed, according to Haitian law experts.

The former Fugees star is one of 15 candidates disqualified from running to succeed President Rene Preval. (ANI)
