Finland to hold second round of Presidential election today

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 11 Feb 2024, 01:17 pm

Helsinki/IBNS/UNI: The second round of the Finnish Presidential election will take place on Sunday, with the incumbent president, Sauli Niinisto, wrapping up his second and final six-year term.

Former Prime Minister Alexander Stubb from the ruling center-right National Coalition Party will face former Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto from the Green League party.

They received 27.2% and 25.8% of votes, respectively, during the first round that took place on January 28. Both candidates support sealing borders with Russia, imposing sanctions against Moscow and providing military aid to Kiev.

It will be Finland's first presidential election as a NATO member, with the next president likely to continue Niinisto's political course in European and transatlantic affairs.
