There is a changing of the guard in Finland.

Point of view

The Finnish situation is very difficult and it will be about a 10-year project to get Finland in shape again

The opposition Centre Party led by millionaire businessman Juha Sipila is the winner of parliamentary elections.

He will replace Alexander Stubb, who has led a broad pro-European coalition government.

Sipila is likely to now become prime minister of a coalition that could include Eurosceptic nationalists.

“The Finnish situation is very difficult and it will be about a 10-year project to get Finland in shape again,” said Sipila.

“And this is a combination of cuts, reforms and growth we will need in the future”.

Much of the campaign was focused on voter dissatisfaction over what is being done to revive the economy.
