BITS & PIECES: Floyd Morris elected president of the Senate + It's a boy for Romae and Kingsley

Romae Gordon and Kingsley Cooper welcomed their first child together, a healthy and bouncing boy named Cole, on Wednesday morning. Both mother and child are reportedly doing well. The dad is said to be over the moon. And we hear a wedding date could be announced any day now. Stay tuned...

Long-serving PNP senator Floyd Morris has been elected President of the Upper House. Morris, who is visually impaired, was elected at the start of sitting on Friday morning. He replaces Stanley Redwood, who
recently resigned and has since migrated to Canada. "I am extremely committed to Jamaica, certainly just the same as other presidents of this chamber have been," Morris said in response to his new appointment. In 1998, Morris became the first blind person to be appointed to serve in the Upper House of Parliament. He has also been state minister in the labour and social security ministry.
