A leaked video of the Finnish prime minister pushing someone at a rowdy party with a bunch of famous pals has drawn fierce criticism. Sanna Marin, the youngest head of state in history at 36, has earned the moniker “coolest politician in the world” for her unhurried approach to governance.
Sanna has also been criticized in the past for her wild lifestyle. The video posted on social media shows Marin with Finnish singer Alma, rapper Petri Nygard as well as TV host Tinni Wikstrom, influencers and members of her own Social Democratic party.
The video was posted online by the Finnish tabloid newspaper, Iltalehti, and shows Marin dancing, singing and drinking with pals in what appears to be an apartment.
It is unclear when the footage was taken but Marin’s wild ways have already landed her in trouble in her home country and attracted lots of media attention. Last year, she was forced to apologize for going clubbing at 4am despite having been in contact with a Covid case.
She attended dinner and drinks just hours after her Foreign Minister tested positive for Covid claiming she was told she did not need to isolate because she was fully vaccinated. In October 2020, In an interview for lifestyle magazine Trendi, she was photographed wearing a blazer with nothing underneath. It again sparked public controversy after she was accused of demeaning her office.
