    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Central American Parliament (PARLACEN) congratulated the Guatemalan, Norma Torres, who on Tuesday was elected the first U.S. congressman from Central America in the House of Representatives.

    The regional body expressed in a statement their “pleasure” for Torres, born in the Escuintla in southern Guatemala, who represent four million inhabitants as a California state senator.

    The new Democratic congresswoman will be among the first Latino faces in the House after winning 63% of the vote over her opponent from the same party, Christina Gagnier, to represent District 35 in California. The elections were held on Tuesday in the North American country.

    The president of the Central American Parliament, Honduran Deputy Armando Bardales, said that Torres’ achievements are an exciting revelation for PARLACEN.

    The Central American Parliament, composed of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Dominican Republic, has 20 democratically elected representatives in each country in accordance with its internal electoral arrangements (EFE).
