  • Finland forms government of five parties all led by women, with youngest prime minister in world!

‘Finland’s coalition government will be composed of five parties all led by women for the first time after the female transport minister won a vote to be the next leader.

Sanna Marin will lead a centre-left coalition of five parties who all have female leaders – four under the age of 35.

Ms Marin, aged 34, will become the world’s youngest sitting prime minister and the country’s third female leader.

Former prime minister Alexander Stubb celebrated the new coalition, saying it “shows that Finland is a modern and progressive country”.’
