HELSINKI (Reuters) – Finland’s Social Democrats said on Wednesday they would try to form a coalition government with the Centre Party and three smaller partners after coming out on top in elections.

The Social Democrats won a general election on April 14 with a record low 17.7 percent of the vote, forcing them to partner up with other parties to form a majority government.

The party’s chairman, Antti Rinne, said he would work on forming a coalition with outgoing Prime Minister Juha Sipila’s Centre Party, the Greens, the Left Alliance and the Swedish People’s Party.
