Former Fugee Pras Sides With Wyclef Opposition In Haitian Presidential Election

(AllHipHop News) Pras Michel, who rapped side-by-side with Wyclef Jean as a member of The Fugees, revealed that he is siding with Michel Martelly for president of Haiti.

Pras expressed himself over social network Twitter.

“All Haitians around the world it’s going to take all of us to start this reconstruction for Haiti !!! Michel Martelly for president 2010!!!” he said. “It’s official the people are asking for it I’m here in the belly of Haiti I endorse Michel Martelly as the next president of Haiti!!!!!”

While Pras has yet to address Wyclef directly, he seemed to support some of the views of actor Sean Penn, who was extremely critical of Wyclef.

“Sean Penn understands what’s really going and understand what Haiti really needs,” he said.

Previously, Penn explained.

“What the Haitian people need now is a leader who’s genuinely willing to sacrifice. One reason I don’t know very much about Wyclef jean because I haven’t seen or heard of him in these last six months that I’ve been in Haiti,” Penn said.

Pras Michel will appear on CNN Friday August 6 to explain his support for Haitian presidential candidate Michel Martelly.
