Fitch Cuts Finland's Outlook to Negative
Finland is holding legislative elections on Sunday and voters are expected to oust Prime Minister Alexander Stubb’s coalition amid hopes that a new government will end the three-year economic crisis in the country.

The liberal-agrarian Center Party is expected to win the elections. Its leader Juha Sipilia, a former businessman and IT millionaire, promised to modernize Finland and fight unemployment, which is currently 9.2 percent.

Finland’s struggling economy has been the main issue of the electing campaign and benefited Sipila, who is new to politics but is known as a successful businessman and a skilled manager.

The current broad coalition of four parties has been mired in discord, preventing it from working out any reforms.

According to a fresh poll, if voting occurred on April 15, the Center Party would win the elections with 24 percent of voter support. However, it is unclear which party would come second. Currently there are three other parties which are neck-to-neck for second place behind the Center Party — the Social Democrats, the National Coalition and the eurosceptic right-wing Finns Party.
