Romania set to have its first woman and first Muslim as PM

Romania’s Social Democratic Party has nominated a woman from the country’s tiny Muslim minority for prime minister.

If Sevil Shhaideh wins approval from the president and Parliament, she will be both the first Muslim and the first woman to hold the post.
