In English


I am a 37 year old Prime Minister of Finland and a mom to a four year-old daughter. I work as a member of parliament and leader of the Social Democratic Party. I am also actively involved in local politics in my home city Tampere and in the Pirkanmaa region. Currently I work as a member of the Tampere city council.

I have studied local and regional administration in the School of Management at the University of Tampere. I have a Master’s degree in Administrative Studies (B.Soc.Sc.).

The values that are important to me are equality, freedom and global solidarity. These are also the founding values of social democracy. Environmental issues and ecological sustainability are also very important to me.
