"Paula Mae Weekes became the first woman president of Trinidad and Tobago last Monday March 19th after being elected by the country's Electoral College back in January. Chief of Justice Ivor Archie swore Weeks in at a ceremony at Queen's Park Savannah in Port Spain at 10 a.m. local time, replacing Anthony Carmona. A retired judge from the Appeal Court, Paula Mae Weekes was the only presidential nominee proposed by the government. Weekes graduated from law school and has a remarkable career in both public and private spheres. She was called to the Bar in 1982 and she served the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for 11 years. In Trinidad, the president is the head of state and is responsible for approving bills before they become law, for โ€œcasting an eye on the operations and behavior of the Government,โ€ as well as being the head of the armed forces. With Weekes' inauguration, Trinidad and Tobago becomes the only republic in Latin America and the Caribbean to have a woman head of state after Chile's Michelle Bachelet left office on March 11."
