Finland’s Social Democrats elected 34-year-old former Transport Minister Sanna Marin for the post of Prime Minister on 8th December, Sunday making her the youngest head of government in the country’s history. Marin narrowly won Sunday’s vote to replace outgoing Prime Minister Antti Rinne, who resigned after losing the confidence of the coalition partner Centre Party over his handling of a postal strike. At 34, Marin also becomes one of the world’s youngest state leaders, ahead of Ukraine’s Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk, who is currently 35.
