Finland has sworn in the world's youngest sitting head of government. The Nordic country's parliament confirmed 34-year-old Sanna Marin as its prime minister on Tuesday.

Marin, a Social Democrat, is set to lead a five-party coalition government. The other four parties also are led by women. All but one of the party leaders are under the age of 35.

芬兰宣誓就任世界上最年轻的政府首脑。北欧国家议会周二确认了34岁的桑纳·马林(Sanna Marin)为总理。

社会民主党人马林(Marin)将领导一个五党联合政府。其他四个政党也由妇女领导。除一名党魁外,其他所有年龄均在35岁以下。


Finland's government resigned last week after the Centre Party said it had lost confidence in Social Democrat Prime Minister Antti Rinne. Marin takes over during nationwide labor unrest and strikes.

Marin is known for her support of climate and environmental issues. She was raised in a so-called "rainbow family," headed by two women. She has told Finnish media about growing up in what she described as "modest" conditions. She has also spoken of past struggles to find her way in life, and the fulfillment she has found in politics.


芬兰政府上周辞职,原因是中央党表示对社会民主党总理安妮·林恩失去信心。马林在全国性的劳工动荡和罢工期间接手了。

马林因其对气候和环境问题的支持而闻名。她在一个由两名妇女领导的所谓“彩虹家庭”中长大。她已经告诉芬兰媒体关于她所说的“适度”条件下的成长。她还谈到过去为找到自己的生活方式而奋斗的过程,以及她在政治中找到的成就。


She is active on social media, especially Instagram. She has posted many pictures of her private life and of her family, which includes her partner and their young daughter. On Instagram, she shared pictures of her pregnancy and of breastfeeding her daughter.

When questioned by The Associated Press during her first press conference, Marin gave an answer in English on her personal social media policies. She promised she would not change her ways.


她活跃于社交媒体,尤其是Instagram。她发布了许多私人生活和家人的照片,包括她的伴侣和他们的小女儿。在Instagram上,她分享了自己怀孕和母乳喂养女儿的照片。

当美联社在第一次记者招待会上受到质疑时,马林(Marin)用英语回答了她的个人社交媒体政策。她保证不会改变自己的方式。


"As I've said, I represent the younger generation," Marin told reporters in Helsinki. "I think that I'm an individual and a real person also even though I'm the prime minister. So I won't change the way I behave. But of course I will be careful of what I say" in social media postings.

After the vote confirming her appointment, Marin reacted with a small smile. Finnish President Sauli Niinisto later welcomed her and her Cabinet, which has women holding 12 of the 19 minister positions.


马林在赫尔辛基对记者说:“正如我所说,我代表年轻一代。” “尽管我是总理,但我仍然认为我既是个人又是真实的人。所以我不会改变自己的举止。但是,我当然会小心我在社交媒体上所说的话” 。

投票确认她的任命后,马林微微一笑。芬兰总统萨利·尼尼斯托(Sauli Niinisto)随后欢迎她和她的内阁,内阁中有19个部长职位中有12个担任妇女。

The timing means Marin will represent Finland at the European Union meeting in Brussels, Belgium, later this week. Finland currently holds the bloc's presidency until the end of the year.

Marin is the third woman to hold the office of prime minister in Finland. She has had a quick rise to the top level of Finnish politics. She took over as city council leader in her hometown when she was 27. She became a national lawmaker in 2015, at the age of 30.


时间安排意味着马林将在本周晚些时候在比利时布鲁塞尔举行的欧盟会议上代表芬兰。芬兰目前担任欧盟轮值主席国,直到今年年底。

马林是芬兰总理府中的第三位女性。她迅速上升到芬兰政治高层。她27岁时接任家乡市议会领导职务。2015年,她成为30岁的国民议员。


Now, Marin is the world's youngest head of government. But she might not be the youngest for long. Thirty-three-year-old Sebastian Kurz, the former Austrian chancellor who rose to that position at age 31, is in talks to form a new coalition. The move would put him back in office as chancellor.


现在,马林是世界上最年轻的政府首脑。但是她可能不是很年轻。 33岁的塞巴斯蒂安·库兹(Sebastian Kurz)是前奥地利总理,现年31岁时升任该职位,目前正在谈判组建新的联盟。此举将使他重新担任总理。
