Her parents split up when she was very young; the family faced financial problems and Marin’s father, Lauri Marin, struggled with alcoholism. After her biological parents separated, Marin was brought up by her mother and her mother’s female partner.

Marin graduated from Pirkkala High School in 2004 at the age of 19. She joined the Social Democratic Youth in 2006 and was its first Vice President from 2010 to 2012. She worked in a bakery and as a cashier while studying, graduating with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Administrative Science from the University of Tampere.

Political career

Marin’s political career was described by the BBC as “beginning at the age of 20”, in the years following her high school graduation and beginning her affiliation with the Social Democratic Youth. She initially unsuccessfully ran for election to the City Council of Tampere but was elected in the 2012 elections.

She became chairperson of the City Council within months, serving from 2013 to 2017. In 2017, she was re-elected to the City Council. She first gained prominence after video clips of her chairing contentious meetings were shared on YouTube.

Marin was elected second deputy chairperson of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in 2014. In 2015, she was elected to the Finnish Parliament as an MP from the electoral district of Pirkanmaa. Four years later, she was re-elected. On 6 June 2019, she became the Minister of Transport and Communications.

On 23 August 2020, Marin was elected chair of the SDP, succeeding Antti Rinne. In December 2019, Marin was nominated by the Social Democratic Party to succeed Antti Rinne as the Prime Minister of Finland, but Rinne formally remained party leader until June 2020. In a narrow vote, Marin prevailed over Antti Lindtman.

A majority of the ministers in her five-party cabinet are women, numbering 12 out of 19 at the time of the cabinet’s formation. She is the third female head of government in Finland, after Anneli Jäätteenmäki and Mari Kiviniemi. Upon her confirmation by Parliament at the age of 34, she became Finland’s youngest-ever prime minister and was the youngest serving state leader until Sebastian Kurz regained the title in January 2020.

During the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Marin’s cabinet invoked the state of emergency in Finland to alleviate the epidemic. When Swedish prime minister Stefan Löfven could not attend a European Council meeting in October 2020 because of his mother’s funeral, Marin stepped in to represent Sweden. In return, Marin asked Löfven to represent Finland at a Council meeting later that month.
