Meet some of the world’s youngest leaders

Emmanuel Macron, 40 years old

President of France

His rise to power would make a good political movie.

When Emmanuel Macron declared his run for presidency, he has never held elected office or run a campaign. His inexperience made him the subject of mockery in French Political circles.

He became the 5th president of the republic after defeating far right experienced candidate Marie-Le-Pen

The 39-year-old former investment banker, entered the race without the backing of any major political party. Rather he formed a small movement En Marche, which grew in number and eventually catapulted him into the Elysee palace.

His private life has attracted attention, too. He married his high school teacher Brigitte Trogneux, today she is first lady at 64 and he is just 40

Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, 30 years old

Country: Prince of Saudi Arabia

With a millennial prince on the throne, Saudi Arabia is set to be more modern and less rigid. Need proof? Their women now drive and can now visit the stadium for a football match.

He has staked his reputation as a reformer who aims to reduce the kingdom’s dependence on oil and open up Saudi to tourism

 

The prince has pushed to lessen the influence of the religious police who roam shopping malls and other public spaces, harassing women who are not well dressed or veiled up. He is also reforming laws tightly controlling the lives of women.

According to the New York Times, His foreign policy has been reckless, as he dabbles into war and conflict quite readily.

Justin Trudeau, 43 years old

Canada

When you think nice guy, you think Justin Trudeau. He is literally the friendliest president in the world. He could roll on the floor with kids. Play on his office table, high five the press and dance with the Indians.

 

He is Pro everyone. Pro-Muslim, Pro – Immigration, Pro – refugees. Not only did he accept 25,000 Syrian refugees he personally went to the airport to welcome them and help hand out warm winter coats.

His cabinet has the highest number of women, Indians and other minorities.

He is extremely playful. He grew up really rich.

He says if there is ever a movie on him, he wants it to be played by Meryl Streep. #women equality

I think I have a crush on him, but then so does Ivanka Trump.

 

 

 

 

Sebastian Kurz,31 years

Austria.

S

He is the newest member in the young country leaders club. He just won his election 2 days ago.

Handsome and powerful, but unlike Macron and Trudeau, he is anti-migrant, anti-Muslim, and anti- refugee.  In 2013, he was appointed Europe’s youngest foreign minister. He was just 27years old.

Kurz made his name as the foreign minister when he closed routes through the Balkans for immigrants into Austria; his party spearheaded laws that recently banned full-face Muslim veils in public spaces.

In summary he is like a Trump, 40 years younger with moderate rhetoric and some finesse Handsome and powerful, but unlike Macron and Trudeau, he is anti-migrant, anti-Muslim, and anti- refugee.  In 2013, he was appointed Europe’s youngest foreign minister. He was just 27years old.

Leo Varadkar: 38years old

Prime minister of Ireland

Republic of Ireland prime minister is half-Indian and openly gay.

Mr. Varadkar has come to embody the liberalization of a country which was once regarded as one of the most socially conservative in Europe.

In 2015, he came out as gay in an interview with the Irish national broadcaster, RTÉ.

He said: “It’s not a big deal for me anymore. I hope it’s not a big deal for anyone else – it shouldn’t be.”

A few months later, Ireland voted in a referendum to legalize same-sex marriage.

 

 Kim Jun UN: 34 years old.

North Korea:

Little rocket man needs no introduction. Everyone knows the man threatening the world with his dangerous nuclear toys.

Outside his nuclear test and possible world war 3, Kim Jun Un was schooled in Switzerland and has reportedly fathered three children with his wife

He loves basketball and is good friends with former NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman.

The strongman leader allegedly has access to a £5million superyacht, a fleet of bulletproof Mercedes limousines and a ski resort for him and his cronies.

He enjoys fine wine and cheese

North Korea has been accused of funding Kim’s extravagant lifestyle through illegal operations including hacking banks, selling weapons, dealing drugs and trafficking endangered species.
