Marlin told reporters after wining a narrow vote among the party leadership.
“We have a lot of work ahead to rebuild trust,”
“I have never thought about my age or gender, I think of the reasons I got into politics and those things for which we have won the trust of the electorate. ”
Marlin who would soon become the youngest sitting prime Minister of Finland and the world at large, rose in politics after becoming head of the city council of her industrial hometown of Tampere at the age of 27.
She will be taking over in the middle of a 3-day wave of strikes, which will halt production at some of Finland’s largest companies from today, Monday December 9.
