Mara takes oath
Barbados’ newest Member of Parliament was sworn in this morning at Government House by Governor General Sir Clifford Husbands.
Mara Thompson, the new parliamentary representative for St John, was sworn in just after 11 a.m.
It was a massive victory for Thompson who won last Thursday’s by-election in St John.
Thompson was accompanied by her daughters Misha, Oya and Osa, as well as her mother Monica Giraudy and sister Jeannine.
Also present were Margaret Knight and Charles Thompson, the parents of the late Prime Minister David Thompson.
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart was also at Government House. (CM)
