Sanna Marin of Finland selected to become the succeeding leader of her party, “Social Democratic,” making her way for the 34-year-old to become the youngest-serving prime minister of the world. The transport minister of Finland expected to take oath as the head of state of the country over the coming days. Marin will head a center-left, an alliance government of five political parties – all leaded by women.
The appointment of the world’s youngest prime minister comes shortly after the resignation of ex-prime minister Antti Rinne. Rinne resigned last week after a separate party in a coalition government in Finland, the Center Party, stated it lost confidence in former prime minister following a postal strike. On Sunday, Marin told reporters that they have too much work to do to rebuild trust in a while after a narrow vote to get the party leadership.
While responding to questions about her experience of politics, Marin said that she never thought about her age or gender, but she thinks of the motives she got into politics and those reasons for which they won the trust of the electorate. Later this week, when Marin enters her office, she will become the youngest-serving prime minister of the world at the age of just 34 years. The age of Oleksiy Honcharuk, the prime minister of Ukraine, is 35, and the age of Jacinda Ardern, the New Zealand Prime Minister, is 39.

Four other political parties in the coalition government of the Scandinavian country also led by women. Anna-Maja Henriksson having the age of 55, leads the Swedish People’s party, Maria Ohisalo, having the age of 34, heading the Green League, Li Anderson with age of 32, heads the Left Alliance and Katri Kalmuni with 32 years is leading the Centre Party. The five-party alliance that took office after the elections of April settled to continue working together in a try to shift to carbon impartiality.
Sanna Marin started giving her services in Finnish politics at the age of twenty-seven when she became the leader of the city council in Tampere, one of the most populated inland cities in the Nordic countries. Marin said on her website that she steps into politics because she sought to influence how society perceives its citizens as well as their rights. Finland, a state of approximately 5.5 million people, at present holds the rotating presidency of the European Union.
Neljässä vuodessa Suomi ei tule valmiiksi, mutta se voi tulla paremmaksi. Sen eteen me teemme töitä. Haluan rakentaa yhteiskuntaa, jossa jokaisesta lapsesta voi tulla mitä vain ja, jossa jokainen ihminen voi elää ja vanheta ihmisarvoisella tavalla.
