Had No Idea That Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz Is Only 32-Years Old.
I kind of vaguely remember hearing that a nationalistic, right-winger had been elected as the Austrian chancellor. But, I didn’t give it much heed. I was too busy worrying about nationalistic, right-winger closer to home. And today they were together, side-by-side at the White House. That is why I got a good look at him. Plus the Drump did mention that ‘he’, i.e., Sebastian, looked young and indeed was young.
Wow. 32-years old. Must have been close to 30 when he was elected. Europe’s youngest head of state.
As I suspected (& hoped) Wikipedia does have a list of ‘youngest heads of state‘ ALBEIT only since 1945. But, at least it gives you some perspective. So, Sebastian is NOT the youngest by a long chalk. Maybe one of the youngest to be genuinely elected.
