Speed Reading — Prime Minister - Level 2 — 300 wpm 

Now do this put-the-text-back-together activity.

This is the text (if you need help).

A 34-year-old woman will be the youngest prime minister in the world. Her name is Sanna Marin. She celebrated her 34th birthday last week. She became the head of the Finnish Social Democrats Party in an election last Sunday. She got 32 of the 61 votes to become leader. Ms Marin was the minister of transport and communications. She is taking over as Finland's prime minister after her former boss, the ex-prime minister, announced last week that he was quitting. Marin will be the youngest prime minister in Finland's history.

Sanna Marin is very excited at the idea of leading her country. She said: "There's a lot of work to be done. First, we'll have to call a meeting...and review the...joint government program which glues the coalition together." She added that one of her first jobs is to increase the popularity of her party, saying: "We have a lot of work ahead to rebuild trust." Marin will lead a coalition government. All four leaders in the coalition are also women. Marin is a new kind of leader. She shares photos of her private, social and political life on her Instagram page.
