After her opponents made a big deal about her partying with friends, she agreed to take a drug test.
The office of Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Monday that a drug test she took to “clear up suspicions” came back negative.
She took the test on Friday, after pictures and videos of her partying with friends got out and made a big deal.
Marin agreed to take the test after videos of her dancing and singing to pop music at a party with Finnish celebrities went viral online last week.
Marin was asked to take a drug test by both members of her government coalition and members of the other party.
Marine didn’t have any of the drugs
Iida Vallin, a special adviser to the prime minister, told the AFP news agency that Marin’s urine sample was checked for drugs like cocaine, amphetamine, cannabis, and opioids.
“The test was a full check for drugs. We didn’t get to decide how the test was given, “Vallin said.
Friday, the prime minister said she had “never in my life” done drugs.
People stand up for Marin’s right to have a quiet life
Finns are now talking about how much a prime minister should be able to party because of the leak.
Even though Marin’s critics said bad things about her, most social media posts backed the prime minister, her image, and her right to have a personal life.
When she was elected in 2019, Marin was the youngest leader of a country in the world. Last week, she said that she spends her free time with friends like other people her age and that she plans to stay the same person she was before.
“I hope that is okay. We live in a democracy, where everyone has a vote in elections, “she told me.
