Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin tested negative for drugs after the video of her partying and drinking went viral. The 36-year-old Prime Minister agreed to take the drug test after the opposition alleged that she had taken cocaine.

Sanna Marin faced harsh criticism after a leaked video of her partying surfaced on social media and went viral. Reportedly, Finnish celebrities such as rapper Petri Nygard, pop singer Antti Tuisku, and YouTuber Ilona Yliporpi, attended the party.

Marin said during a press appearance that she has never taken drugs and denied doing anything illegal. She said that she drank alcohol at the party but was not drinking excessively. Marin added she knew she was being recorded but was unaware that the footage would be publicised. “The recordings are private and were released at a private event,” said Marin.

Marin told reporters, “I did nothing illegal. Even in my teenage years, I have not used any kind of drugs.”

Politician Riikka Purra challenged Marin to take a drug test and prove that she had not taken illicit substances the day of the party. Marin announced on Friday that she would undergo a drug test to dismiss concerns that she had taken illegal substances and was under their influence in the controversial party videos.

The government said in a statement that “no drugs were found” in the test result and added that Marin paid for the costs of the test herself. According to special adviser Iida Vallin, Marin’s urine sample was tested for cocaine, cannabis, opioids, and amphetamines.

Reporters questioned whether the Prime Minister would be able to make quick decisions if necessary. She responded that her ability to perform her official duties remains unimpaired and if there was a situation that required her attention she would have left.

Marin said, “I don’t remember a single time that there was a sudden situation in the middle of the night to go to the State Council Palace”. She added, “I think my ability to function was really good. There were no known meetings on the days I was partying.”
