The two candidates in Haiti's presidential runoff have continued to hit the campaign trail. Former first lady Mirlande Manigat will face Michel Martelly, better known as the singer "Sweet Micky", in the vote on March 20th.

Mirlande Manigat, Presidential Candidate, said, "I think that if I'm elected, it will mean that the people accept that a woman can lead the country, and once in power you will see that gender has nothing to do with competency, determination and courage. And I am ready to prove it to you."

Michel Martelly, Presidential Candidate, said, "We're talking about decentralisation, because we talk about reconstruction. We have the tendency to think we should only rebuild in Port-au-Prince but it is imperative we work on decentralisation, on developing neighbouring towns, because we now have nice roads taking us to the North, to the South, but when we get there, people don't have drinkable water and they can't read or write."
