Finnish leader Sanna Marin, 34, becomes world’s youngest prime minister

Finland’s new Prime Minister Sanna Marin is the youngest leader in the world. She was nominated by the dominant Social Democrats on Sunday. Centre Party chief Katri Kulmuni, 32, will be the finance minister in the new women-led coalition cabinet. The full new cabinet will be announced this week, as per party members.

Finland’s government resigned after the Centre Party said it had lost confidence in Social Democrat Prime Minister Antti Rinne over his handling of a postal strike. However, the five parties decided to remain in power and continue with the same programmes. The parties, four of which are led by women, said there would be a reshuffle.
