Helsinki: Transportation Minister, Sanna Marin, aged 34, will become the world’s youngest prime minister of a women-led coalition government in Finland, followed by Ukrainian PM Oleksiy Honcharuk, 35 and New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern, 39, BBC reported.
The minister was picked by her Social Democratic party to take charge after PM Antti Rinne quit. The PM who is expected to be sworn in this week will lead a center-left coalition of five parties all headed by women.
“We have a lot of work to do to rebuild trust,” Ms. Marin, who won the vote by a narrow margin, told reporters.
She brushed away questions about her age, saying: “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.”
According to Finnish broadcaster YLE, Sanne Marin was raised by a single mother and was the first person in her family to go to university.
