Finland election: Economy on top of voters' minds
April 19 , 2015
Voters in Finland are casting their ballot following an election campaign in which the economy was the main issue.
Prime Minister Alexander Stubb’s National Coalition Party is being challenged by Juha Sipila, a former businessman, and the Centre Party.
Sipila has promised to create over 200,000 jobs in the next decade. After two years of recession, the country’s unemployment is 9.2%.
The ruling coalition has found it hard to carry out major reforms.
