Finland’s parliament approves the appointment of the world’s youngest female prime minister

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Finland’s parliament approved on Tuesday the 34-year-old politician Sana Marin to be the prime minister, making it the youngest to hold the premiership globally.

99 of the 200 members of Parliament voted in favor of Marin’s candidacy for the post, while 70 deputies expressed their disapproval and 30 abstained.

“We will not make Finland perfect in four years, but it can become better … I want to build a society in which every child can become anything and every person can live and grow in life with dignity,” wrote Maren, a Social Democrat, on Twitter.

With the approval of Parliament, the President of Finland is expected to appoint the Marin coalition government, which includes five parties consisting of 12 ministers and 7 ministers.
