Sanna Mirella Marin is a Finnish politician who became the Prime Minister of Finland on 10 December 2019. A member of the Social Democratic Party, she has been a member of the Parliament of Finland since 2015 and served as the Minister of Transport and Communications from 6 June to 10 December 2019. After Antti Rinne's resignation, allegedly in the wake of a minor 2019 postal strike, saw Marin elected as prime minister on 8 December 2019, just in time for COVID.

At 35, with as good as no political experience, she is Finland's youngest-ever prime minister. After the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, she has pushed hard for her country to join NATO alongside Magdalena Andersson of Sweden.[1]

She was defeated for re-election in the 2023 parliamentary election, where her SDP placed third place. After stepping down as party leader soon after, she got a new job at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change[2].

Early life and education

Sanna Mirella Marin was born on 16 November 1985 in Helsinki.[3][4] She also lived in Espoo and Pirkkala before moving to Tampere.[3] Her parents split up when she was very young; the family faced financial problems and Marin's father, Lauri Marin,[5] struggled with alcoholism. After her biological parents separated, Marin was brought up by her mother and her mother's female partner.[6][7][8]

Marin graduated from the Pirkkala High School in 2004 at the age of 19.[9] Marin joined the Social Democratic Youth in 2006 and was its first Vice President from 2010 to 2012.[10][3] She worked in a bakery and as a cashier while studying,[11] graduating with bachelor's and master's degrees in Administrative Science from the University of Tampere.[7][11]

Early political career

Social Democratic Party

Marin's political career was described by the BBC as "beginning at the age of 20",[6] in the years following her high school graduation and beginning her affiliation with the Social Democratic Youth.[6][10] She initially unsuccessfully ran for election to the City Council of Tampere, but was elected in the 2012 municipal elections.[6][3][12][13] She became chairperson of the City Council within months, serving from 2013 to 2017.[7] In 2017, she was re-elected to the City Council.[14] She first gained prominence after video clips of her chairing contentious meetings were shared on YouTube.[11]

Marin was elected second deputy chairperson of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in 2014.[15][7] In 2015, she was elected to the Finnish Parliament as an MP from the electoral district of Pirkanmaa.[16][17] On 6 June 2019, she became the Minister of Transport and Communications.[15][18][11]

On 23 August 2020, Marin was elected chair of the SDP, succeeding Antti Rinne.[19]

Prime Minister of Finland

In December 2019, Marin was nominated by the Social Democratic Party to succeed Antti Rinne as the Prime Minister of Finland,[20][21] but Rinne formally remained party leader until June 2020.[22][23] In a narrow vote, Marin prevailed over Antti Lindtman. A majority of the ministers in her five-party cabinet are women, numbering 12 out of 19 at the time of the cabinet's formation.[24][25] She is the third female head of government in Finland, after Anneli Jäätteenmäki and Mari Kiviniemi.[12][26][23]

Upon her confirmation by Parliament at the age of 34, she became Finland's youngest-ever prime minister, and was the youngest serving state leader until Sebastian Kurz regained the title in January 2020 [21][27][28]

During the global "COVID-19 pandemic" in 2020, Marin's cabinet invoked the state of emergency in Finland, with lockdowns and other drastic measures.[29]

Sanna Marin+Z.webp

On May 25, 2021, Finnish media reported that Marin and her family were buying about 300 euros per month in groceries with public funds as a part of the Prime Minister's tax-free housing benefits. The legality of the arrangement was questionable since the housing benefits don't explicitly include food provisions.[30][31] [32] In her defense, she said it was established practice with former PMs, something that also was questioned.[33]

Tony Blair Institute

She was defeated for re-election in the 2023 parliamentary election, where her SDP placed third place. After stepping down as party leader soon after, she got a new job at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change[34].

Personal life

In August 2022 a video surfaced which showed her at a private party dancing with friends.[35][36] When questions came up about the circumstances afterwards, she committed to have a drug test.[37][38]

Marin describes herself as coming from a "rainbow family",[39] as she was raised by same-sex parents.[18][40][4] She was the first person in her family to attend university.[41] Marin is a vegetarian.[42]

In January 2018, Marin and her fiancé, Markus Räikkönen, had a daughter, Emma.[43][44][45] In August 2020, Marin and Räikkönen married at the prime minister's official residence, Kesäranta.[46] Their permanent residence is in the Kaleva district of Tampere,[3] but during the COVID-19 event, they resided at Kesäranta.[44]

After her quitting politics, the couple filed for divorce in May 2023.[47]
