PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Former US President Bill Clinton discussed the future of efforts to reconstruct this earthquake-ravaged nation with two candidates who will face off next month in presidential elections.

During his one-day visit, Clinton met separately behind closed doors at the Hotel Karibe with carnival singer Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly and former first lady Mirlande Manigat, who will compete in a March 20 runoff.

In response to a question from reporters after the meeting, Martelly said he thought ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide had a right to return to the country.
