After the photo in a lame dress, the "bamboche" video: Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin at the heart of a new controversy


The 36-year-old leader has received the wrath of the opposition and divided public opinion, after the publication of a video where we see her partying and wiggling alongside Finnish personalities.

In 2019, Sanna Marin was appointed Prime Minister of Finland at just 34 years old, becoming the youngest head of government in the country's history.

Since then, she has been chaining official events and meetings.

But not only.

This Wednesday August 17, a video supposed to remain private was made public on social networks, showing the ex-minister of transport granting himself a few festive moments with friends.

The publication earned him widespread criticism and an attack by the opposition.

In video, tie at the National Assembly: "All clothing is political"

“I will continue to be the exact same person”

Friends dancing, singing and drinking at a party.

In these videos captured from Instagram, among the small group of Finnish personalities bringing together artists, photographers and political figures, we recognize Sanna Marin.

Singing at the top of her voice and dancing on the ground, the Prime Minister received the wrath of the media and her political opponents, accused of having consumed drugs.

Indeed, Internet users have noted allusions to cocaine in the video, prompting the leader of the opposition, Riikka Purra, to demand a screening test from the head of government.

“I have a family, a job and sometimes a little time during which I take advantage of my friends.

(...) And I confirm it to you: I danced and I sang, I took my friends in my arms and drank alcohol.

I will continue to be exactly the same person as I have been until today, and I hope that will be accepted”, defended the head of government.

Before concluding: "I did not use drugs, and therefore, I have no problem taking a test".

This is not the first time that Sanna Marin has found herself at the heart of a controversy.

Last December, she panicked the Web by going to a nightclub after having rubbed shoulders with a Covid-19 contact case in the government.

Without even bothering to bring his office laptop.

No less than a week ago, it was a photo of her in an evening dress that hit the headlines.

After going to the Flow Festival to discuss the evolution of the music industry in the country, she quickly swapped her sober costume for a sequined outfit, more suitable for attending concerts.
