Sanna Marin to become world’s youngest PM

10.12.19 / Finland’s Sanna Marin will take office this week and become the world’s youngest sitting prime minister at age 34.

Formerly Finland’s Minister of Transport and Communications, Marin entered politics aged just 27, and became an MP in 2015, age 30. She will be the third woman to lead the country.
