News Politics: Since January 2019, Sanna Marin, a politician from Finland, has held the position of prime minister. Sanna Marin, the youngest official in Finnish history, assumed office at the age of 34. She is also the third-youngest state leader in the world, behind Gabriel Boric of Chile and Dritan Abazovic of Montenegro. Since 2015, Sanna Marin has served as a member of parliament for the Social Democratic Party of Finland. On December 8, 2019, Sanna Marin won the election to become Finland’s prime minister, succeeding Antti Rinne, who had resigned due to the scandal surrounding the postal strike.
Sanna Marin joined the Social Democratic Party in 2006 and was its first Vice President from 2010 to 2012. In 2008, she unsuccessfully ran for the election to the City Council of Tampere, but stood again and was elected in the 2012 elections.
Sanna Marin was born November 16, 1985 in Helsinki, Finland. She also lived in Espoo and Pirkkala before moving to Tampere. Marin’s parents separated when she was very young; the family faced financial problems and her father Lauri Marin, struggled with alcoholism. After Sanna Marin’s biological parents separated, she was brought up by her mother and her mother’s female partner.
Sanna Marin became the Chairman of the City Council within months and served from 2013 to 2017. In 2017, she was re-elected to the City Council and first gained prominence after the video clips of her chairing contentious meetings were shared in YouTube.
