One more for us

Well assuming we haven't lost any in the mean time. Chile have elected their first female president. That makes ten around the world I think. Unless we've lost one in the mean time. Here's my latest list:

Ireland President Mary McAleese elected 1997
New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark elected 1999
Latvia President Vaira Vike-Freiberga elected 1999
Finland President Tarja Halonen elected 2000
The Philippines Presidnet Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo succeeded 2001, elected 2004
Bangladesh Prime Minister Khaleda Zia elected 2001
Mozambique Prime Minister Luisa Diogo appointed 2004
São Tomé and Príncipe Maria do Carmo Silveira appointed 2004
Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel elected 2005

and new entry Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile (2006- )

Sounds like she has some sensible plans for reform too, though we'll have to wait and see if she really means it.
