Parliamentary elections in Finland


The True Finns Party has gained about 19% of votes in parliamentary election which was held yesterday in Finland.

The liberal-conservatist National Coalition Party has won the election gaining around 19,9% of votes, the second place belongs to Social Democratic Party of Finland (19,4% of votes) and surprisingly the populist True Finns Party has gained 18,7% of votes (so far being a marginal party, in the 2007 election they have gained only 4% of votes). The current largest party in the Parliament - Centre Party - ended up being the fourth on the list. The strong result of the populist and eurosceptic party will complicate political situation in Finland.
