Congratulations to the newly elected president of Trinidad and Tobago, Paula Mae Weekes, who makes history becoming the first female President in the nation’s history. With her election, Trinidad and Tobago is now the only country in Latin America and the Caribbean to be governed by a female head of state.

During President Weekes illustrious career she served as an attorney within the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for 11 years, judge at the Criminal Division of Trinidad’s High Court, and Justice of Appeal in the Turks and Caicos Islands for three years.

We at Suppliety News would like to congratulate President Weekes and wish her luck in her position.
