Malaysia is having the world oldest prime minister, the greatest world leader Tun M who is elected at his age of 92.
While Finland will have the world’s youngest prime minister ,34 yo Sanna Marin who will takes over the office this week.
She was formerly Finland’s Minister of Transport and Communications and was selected by her Social Democratic party on Sunday to take over as the country’s leader after former Prime Minister Antti Rinne resigned last week.
Marin joins other young world leaders, including 39-year-old Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s prime minister, and 35-year-old Oleksiy Honcharuk, the prime minister of Ukraine.
She entered into politics at age 27, becoming the head of the City Council in her hometown of Tampere. She is also a new mum and her daughter is about 1yo now.

“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,” she said.
A tweet by a journalist for Finnish newspaper with photos drew attention online by visually underscoring the idea of rising female power in politics.
