Members of Barbados’ House of Assembly and Senate have overwhelmingly elected Dame Sandra Mason to become Barbados’ first president on November 30, 2021.
Dame Sandra, who is the current Governor General, will move from representing Queen Elizabeth II, to replacing her as Barbados’ Head of State.
The House voted 27-0 while the Senate voted 18-0.
There was one unreturned ballot in the Senate as Caswell Franklyn voiced objection to the process and walked out of the historic meeting at Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
Prime Minister Mia Mottley and Opposition Leader Bishop Joseph Atherley had jointly nominated Dame Sandra to be president.
