#FINLAND: Populist Finns Party Wins Strong Second In Election

[world politics news]

The euroskeptic Finns Party won 39 seats in the 200-seat Finnish legislature in Sunday's election, one fewer than the center-left Social Democratic Party that received the most votes.

Finns Party chairman Jussi Halla-aho also received the most votes by far of any candidate who ran for the Eduskunta legislature. Finnish media are suggesting that could put him in the role of kingmaker in the next government.
