Hip hop star Wyclef Jean has officially registered to stand for president of his native Haiti ahead of the presidential election due to be held on 28 November.

He spoke to World News America's Sharon Carpenter about his presidential ambitions and hopes for the future of the country following January's devastating earthquake which killed 250,000 people and left 1.5 million homeless.
