PM's wife becomes youngest parliamentarian

Maria Bird Browne becomes the youngest parliamentarian, elected at just 26 years old.
The granddaughter of the nation’s founding father, Sir Vere Cornwall Bird, says she’s “elated” to win and more importantly to serve.
She thanked the electors for supporting her in such an overwhelming way, winning in all 14 ballot boxes in the St. John’s Rural East constituency.
Bird Browne is also the wife of prime minister designate, Gaston Browne who is set to be sworn in as prime minister at 11 a.m. today.
The young parliamentarian who was thrown into the race at the last minute late last year, says her win is a victory for the youth as much as it is for women. She’s encouraging both to go after their dreams and to live to serve.
