London, Oct. 1 (ANI): Rapper Wyclef Jean is planning to run for president of Haiti in 2015.

The Fugees star, who lives primarily in the U.S., was ruled out of the political race in August (10) after Haitian lawmakers decided he did not meet the necessary residency requirements to be considered eligible for the upcoming November (10) vote, reports the Daily Express.

Jean officially withdrew his candidacy for the presidency last week (21Sep10) but he insists he's not quitting politics altogether - he is eyeing a return in five years' time.

He tells Hip-Hop Weekly, "I'm not a quitter, and the most important thing for me is, I think, to move Haiti forward, it's gonna take modern thinking. So, if all goes well, I plan to definitely come back in five years and give it another shot." (ANI)
