Finnish PM’s “cool” festival outfit sparks discussion about politicians’ clothing


Finland’s prime minister Sanna Marin is being hailed “effortlessly cool”After attending a Turku Rock Festival.

Ruisrock, Europe’s oldest rock music event, dates back to 1970. Marin, 36, is the PM of Finland and was the youngest prime minister in the world when she was elected. As a member from the Social Democratic party, she was first elected to Finnish parliament in 2015.

Marin was seen wearing a leather jacket with denim shorts to the festival, breaking stereotypes. After a viral tweet went viral on Twitter, Marin’s snap attracted attention from all over the globe. It received thousands of retweets, likes, and responses.

“Don’t even try to pretend that your prime minister is anywhere near as effortlessly cool as Sanna Marin at Ruisrock Festival this weekend,”It was as follows:

One user replied: “How cool would it be if we have a president like her?”

“Don’t even try to pretend that hipster militarism is not your thing”One person joked that he was a comedian, while another added: “Yes, ‘cool level’ may not be the best indicator of a prime minister’s job performance, but it sure doesn’t hurt. Finland’s Sanna Marin is setting a new bar.”

A user added the following to the photo of the fashionable PM: “The social democrat PM of Finland, ladies and gentlemen. Yes, she can definitely pull off this outfit, but she also sounds like a pretty good egg.”

Marin was also featured on the official Instagram account.

Twitter users were more active in sharing their views, some even comparing themselves to the leader.

However, there were a few party-poopers who were cynical. One saying: “There is nothing more postmodern than the infatuation with this girl. Her positive qualities, many as they are, do not make her a good leader. In fact, these qualities are totally irrelevant when it comes to her actual job.”

An additional: “That’s nice and all, but I started wishing ppl pay more attention to what politicians achieve in their line of work for the betterment of all, rather than how cool they look in shorts at a festival.”
