SANNA MARIN BECOMES WORLD’S YOUNGEST PRIME MINISTER

34-year-old, Sanna Marin has become Finland’s youngest Prime Minister ever, after winning Sunday’s election to replace Prime Minister Antti Rinne who resigned on Tuesday, December 3.

The former transport minister whose party is the largest in a five-member governing coalition, will be the world’s youngest serving prime minister when she takes office in the coming days.

The prime minister-elect told reporters that she has “a lot of work ahead to rebuild trust,”
“I have never thought about my age or gender, I think of the reasons I got into politics and those things for which we have won the trust of the electorate,”


Marin isn’t the only world leader in her 30s, though: Ukranian premier Oleksiy Honcharuk is 35 and New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is 39.

The five major parties in Finland’s parliament are now all led by women, four of whom are in their 30s: Li Andersson, 32, is the leader of the Left Alliance; Maria Ohisalo, 34, leads the Green League; the Centre Party is led by Katri Kulmuni, 32; and Anna-Maja Henriksson, 55, is leader of the Swedish People’s Party of Finland.
