Trinidad and Tobago swears in 1st female PM

Trinidad and Tobago swore in its first female Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar on Wednesday, completing a new chapter for this energy rich Caribbean nation.
Persad Bissessar took the oath of office after her People's Partnership party's landslide victory at the polls Monday, taking 29 out of 41 seats and sending the People's National movement into opposition after more than four decades of almost unbroken rule.
Persad Bissessar swore solemnly to uphold the constitution and the law as she took the oath standing next to President George Maxwell Richards.
