Leo Varadkar
Ireland's governing political party, Fine Gael has elected Leo Varadkar, as its new leader and the 38 year old will succeed Enda Kenny, and thereby becomes the first openly gay prime minister in an country where homosexuality was only legalised in 1993. The 38-year-old son of an Indian immigrant will also be the youngest-ever person to hold the office.

He is expected to be voted in as prime minister when parliament next sits on 13 June.


“If somebody of my age, of my mixed race background and of all the things that make up my character can potentially become leader of our country, then I think that sends out a message to every child born today that there is no office in Ireland that they can’t aspire to,” Mr Varadkar told Newstalk radio this week.
