World IN BRIEF : HAITI : New Premier Asks People to Be Patient

November 09, 1994|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Prime Minister Smarck Michel assumed office at a ceremony in which he played down high hopes and asked for the patience of his long-suffering countrymen. "I want to thank the Haitian people for their patience, and I hope I do not disappoint them," Michel said in a brief speech. Michel was appointed by President Jean-Bertrand Aristide after he was restored to power last month with the backing of the U.S. military. Michel said it was time to "walk hand in hand with the military authorities, Haitian and foreign."
