Wyclef Jean will release a new six song EP dubbed, ‘If I Were President: My Haitian Experience,’ on Tuesday, December 7, 2010. The set is led by the single “Election Time,” a provocative new universal song written in the wake of Wyclef’s recent attempt to run for president in Haiti and “Haitian Experience,”

For the lead single “Election Time,” it’s about the real world elections in both of Wyclef’s countries–the United States and Haiti.

“It means the rebirth of my country. It means that the young people can bring about change,” says Wyclef. “I would want to tell the youth of Haiti to go out and vote. We have had a long history of dictatorship in Haiti. It’s not a Haitian right to vote that we are talking about. We are talking about a world right. Take your right. Your true weapon is your voting card. Use your weapon and use it wisely.” SOURCE
