YOUNGEST MP EVER
In the recent federal election Australia’s youngest ever MP was elected into office.
One article reads - WATCHING Australia's youngest-ever MP shake hands and stop to greet members of the public, you'd think he had been doing it for years. But Wyatt Roy, 20, who won the Queensland seat of Longman for the Liberal Party, said he was still getting used to all the excitement and formalities surrounding his new position. "It's all so new and it's a lot like being on ice-skates; everything moves so quickly," Mr Roy said yesterday.
Mr Roy spent his first official day in Parliament yesterday sitting next to the longest serving MP, Philip Ruddock, 67, who took him under his wing. Mr Ruddock was elected in 1973, 17 years before Mr Roy was born.
