  • Finnish voters shifted their support to conservative parties in the recent election, ending PM Sanna Marin’s term.
  • The center-right National Coalition Party secures victory, while the right-wing populist Finns Party achieves a historic result.
  • The new government faces challenges addressing economic issues and increasing defense spending as Finland prepares for NATO entry.

Sanna Marin, Finland’s left-leaning prime minister, failed to get re-elected because voters gave a lot more support to conservative parties.

This development occurs right before Tuesday’s momentous NATO entrance by the Nordic countries.

Despite Marin’s success as a result of how her cabinet handled the COVID-19 pandemic and its steadfast support for Ukraine following its attack by Russia last year, economic issues turned out to be the main election issue.

The 5.5 million-strong electorate of Finland looked to right-leaning groups for answers to the problems of growing state debt, inflation, and other economic difficulties.

The new government will have to work hard to find a solution to Finland’s growing debt, which is made worse by the fact that the country needs to spend more on defense because it is about to join NATO.

After Turkey approved its membership last week, Finland will join NATO on Tuesday. This will be the last thing stopping the country, which has a long border with Russia, from becoming a member.

The National Coalition Party (NCP), a party on the center-right, got the most votes in the election (20.8%), putting it in a position to try to form a government.

Marin’s Social Democrats received 19.9% of the vote, while the right-wing nationalist Finns Party received 20.1%.

The results show that the people of Finland want conservative groups to help them with their economic worries.

Professor of political history at the University of Helsinki, Juhana Aunesluoma, noted that roughly one-third of the ballots went to left-wing parties, with the other two-thirds going to right-wing parties.

The big change in voter support, which could affect the goals of the next government, shows how important economic problems were in this election.

The new government of Finland will have to deal with the difficulties of higher military expenditure while also tackling the country’s fiscal problems as it plans to join NATO.

The election results show that the Finns want the government to focus on these important issues. In order to solve the country’s economic and security problems, the winning parties will have to put aside their differences in order to form a coalition.
