Rapper Kanye West, who announced his candidacy for the US presidency on July 4, has registered his election campaign committee in the Federal Election Commission on Thursday and has been approved to appear on Oklahoma state ballots.

Oklahoma is the first state in which West is officially considered an independent candidate, something he has accomplished at the last minute, as he submitted the necessary documentation and paid the required $ 35,000 just after the deadline.

This movement contradicts the information published yesterday by the newspaper ‘New York Magazine’ (NYM), in which the electoral strategist Steve Kramer, supposedly hired by the rapper, confirmed that he is “out” of the presidential race.

The actual intention behind West’s announcement is unclear, because although his name will appear on the ballot paper Oklahoma, a state of just 4 million, the registration deadline has already expired in half a dozen territories.

It also remains to be seen if he will be able to gather the necessary signatures to appear on the ballots of the remaining states since the requirements are different in each place.

But in addition, West has also filed a  Statement of Organization’ with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

The document serves to designate a campaign committee and allow it to raise and spend money on electoral work, upon payment of $ 5,000 that West would have paid.

The file shows that the party the rapper is affiliated with is called BDY – short for ‘birthday’ – and the committee’s name is Kanye 2020.

It all happens after ‘Forbes’ magazine published an interview with the musician in which he made several controversial statements.

Among them, who no longer supported the current president, Donald Trump, whom he had fervently defended, who suspected a possible COVID-19 vaccine or that the US family planning system is the work of white supremacists.

He also explained that the slogan of his campaign would be ‘YES!’, and the name of his political formation, ‘Birthday Party’, which he chose because, “when we win, it will be everyone’s birthday.”

Soon after, a source revealed to People magazine that West is going through a bipolar episode and that both his wife, Kim Kardashian and those close to him were concerned about his health.
