Georgia's Youth Parliament

I am fascinated by this article that appeared in a recent issue of the magazine Monocle. It talks about the ruling party in the Eastern European (thanks for the correction, Claudinho) Republic of Georgia, which is comprised of mostly 20- and 30-somethings.

This crop of young leaders is part of a concerted effort to staff up with a new generation of officials not tainted by Georgia's Communist past. The majority of them were educated in the US and Europe, which helps them in their dealings with the West, something their predecessors lacked.

Very interesting! I'm curious if there are any other countries with such young people in power. Oh, and by the, Georgia is not in Eastern Europe, although in is situated in the east, the Republic is in Caucasus.
