Pras Not Supporting Wyclef's Haiti Bid

WYCLEF JEAN's former FUGEES co-star PRAS is refusing to support the rapper's bid to become the next Haitian president - he has sided with the opposition instead.

Jean's decision to move into politics has already angered actor/activist Sean Penn, who slammed the move as "suspicious", and now his former bandmate Pras Michel has publicly come out in support of another candidate.
Michel, who has Haitian roots, has given his backing to Michel Martelly, who will run against Jean at the upcoming election.
