Finland picked its youngest citizen as prime minister on Sunday, December 8, after former transport minister, Sanna Marin, aged 34, won an election.
The Straits Times reports that Marin's victory was a close margin, making her the replacement for the outgoing Antti Rinne who lost people's confidence with the way he handled postal strike.
“We have a lot of work to do to rebuild trust,” Marin said as she spoke to newsmen, parrying questions that had to do with her age.
"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,” she said.
It should be noted that the former PM stepped down after long weeks of political unrest following the plan to reduce wage for 700 postal workers.
Marin will be formally sworn in as the new country’s prime minister on Tuesday, December 10.
