The world's new poorest leader is...

  • Nepal's new prime minister Sushil Koirala is being called the new poorest leader of the world. He claims to possess three things, which are all cell phones and one of them doesn't function. 

    Reports suggest the Koirala used to live in a rental house before being elected to live in the official residence and doesn't own any property. The Washington Post noted that he's poor by his own choice since his family is rich and he eschewed his inheritence. 

    Uruguay's Jose Mujica is another such leader who only has one declared possession: A Volkswagen Beetle that's two decades old.
