President-elect receives her instruments of appointment

President-elect Paula-Mae Weekes has signed her instruments of appointment and is set to becoming the country's sixth president.

Earlier today she received the instruments from House Speaker Bridgid Annisette-George at a small ceremony at the diplomatic reception lounge of Parliament.

Weekes toured the parliament chamber with the presiding officers and during a brief question and answer session with journalists she said crime and youth issues are of main concern to her.

Weekes was declared to be elected president by Annisette-George, chairman of the Electoral College earlier this month.

She stood unopposed as the nominee named by Government and endorsed by the Opposition.
