NEW THAI PREMIER

Narong Wongwan, the pro-military politician who heads the party that finished strongest in last weekend's general election, agreed Wednesday to serve as Thailand's new prime minister.

Narong, leader of the Sammakhi Tham Party, made the announcement at a news conference following a meeting of leaders of his and four other parties that will probably form a coalition government.
