The Social Democratic Party of Finland elected the country’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin as the new leader of the ranks following an unopposed election on Sunday.
“Thank you for being humble. I will try to do the job justice,” Marin said in his first message on Twitter after knowing the party’s decision.
Marin, who is one of the youngest elected leaders in the world at just 34, was the only candidate for a position where she replaces another woman who had two roles: Anne Rinne.
Rinne resigned as prime minister in December 2019 after just six months after a dispute with coalition partner, the Center Party.
