Another EU state votes in Liberals

In last Sunday's elections, Suomen Keskuta, the liberal Centre Party, became the largest party in the Finnish parliament. The Liberal International report does not say what the opinion polls were predicting.

Another party to do well was the one formed to look after the interests of the Swedish-speaking community in Finland (from which, incidentally, the composer Sibelius sprang). One would have thought from its name that the Swedish People's Party was either extremely socialist or extremely fascist but, no, it too is a liberal party.
