The head of the Centre Party, Katri Kulmuni, 32, becomes finance minister, Green Party leader Maria Ohisalo, 34, continues as interior minister and the Left Alliance's chairwoman Li Andersson, 32, remains education minister.

You may know Sanna Marin as the politician set to be world's youngest prime minister at the age of 34, of Finland. She was also the first in her family to go to university.

Marin is the mother of a two-year-old daughter.

And Ms Marin appears to have a sweet tooth, having shared fun photos of her tucking into ice cream and candy floss.

But on Tuesday, Marin deflected questions about the global attention she has received over becoming the world's youngest premier.

She has also said that her childhood has strongly influenced her political priorities, which include protecting Finland's generous welfare system and low levels of inequality. 'Invisibility caused a feeling of incompetence.

But growing up those around her did not always feel the same way, and she said that growing up with same-sex parents made her feel "invisible" and that they "were not recognised as a true family or equal with others".

'Within four years we won't complete Finland but it can become better.I want to build a society in which every child can become anything and in which every human being can live and grow old with dignity, ' Marin wrote on Twitter.

Speaking after Tuesday's parliamentary vote, Marin pledged to rebuild trust in her party.

The mother-of-one was elected to the City Council of Tampere in 2012 and became its chairperson in 2013 - a role she held until 2017, when she was re-elected. She took over as the head of the Centre Party from ex-prime minister Juha Sipila in September.

She became the Minister of Transport and Communications in June earlier this year. Finland now holds the bloc's rotating presidency until the end of the year.
