Olivia Savvas set to become youngest member of South Australia’s Parliament


25-year-old, Olivia Savvas, is poised to become the youngest person in South Australia’s Parliament, according to an article in The Advertiser.

This comes after the Labor candidate won in the key marginal seat of Newland, despite being pre-selected only weeks before last weekend’s election.

The first-term councillor tells the newspaper that she is determined to be an advocate for women and young people, despite not having “20 plus years of corporate experience.”

“…but I do have 20 plus years of fight,” she said. “And what you need in a Member of Parliament is a fighter and I’ve got that in droves.”
