Sanna Marin appointed as world’s youngest serving Prime Minister in Finland

34-year-old Sanna Marin becomes the youngest Prime Minister in the history of Finland. She was chosen by her social democratic party on Sunday. She was elected after the resignation of Antti Rinne. Rinne submitted the resignation on Tuesday after a party in the alliance, Centre party, said that they lost trust in him after his handling of a postal strike.

Sanna Marin’s party is the largest party in a five-member ruling coalition. Sanna will become the youngest Prime Minister of Finland. Sanna Marin is likely to take the oath of her office this week.

Sanna said while talking about her age: “We have a lot of work to do 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.”

Sanna will become the head at her younger age. Furthermore, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern took the oath as a Prime Minister at the age of 37. North Korea’s Kim Jong Un was under 30 years old when he became Supreme Leader in 2011. Former Chancellor Sebastian Kurz of Austria was 31 when he took responsibility in 2017. These are the few leaders in the history who took responsibility at a younger age.

Sanna Marin was raised in a ‘Rainbow family’. She lived in a rented apartment with her mother. She said that when she was a child she was ‘invisible’ and never talk openly about her family.

Sanna said that her mother was very supportive she always urged her that she will do anything she wanted. In her family, she was the first one who took admission in the university. She has been transporting and communications minister since June. She has a 22-month-old daughter.
