Haiti's leader shows few gains since election
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, CANA-Reuters - Haitian President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide has made little headway during his first 100
days back in power in dealing with a political crisis and heightened
worries about crime, academics and opposition politicians say.
Since taking up a second term on Feb. 7, Aristide remains the
impoverished Caribbean country's most popular politician and has
unveiled a U.N.-backed plan to battle AIDS in Haiti, where some
333,000 of 7.8 million people have the disease. Aristide, a former
Roman Catholic priest, has renovated public parks and the airport
and has been working on carrying out political reforms agreed with
the United States.
