Not really Although the Center Party of was the largest party after the election they were well short of the 101 they needed to win an absolute majority
|National Coalition Party||539,615||18.20||37||–7|
|Social Democratic Party||489,705||16.51||34||–8|
|Swedish People's Party of Finland||144,520||4.87||9||0|
There is also one member from the autonomous Aland Islands who tend to align with the Swedish Peoples PartyThe Election was held under the same system as we use in Wales for the Assembly elections
The previous government consisted of by a four party coalition, composed of the National Coalition Party, Social Democratic Party, Swedish People's Party and the Christian Democrats as well as the MP for Åland.
So its likely that there will be rejigging of coalition partners and Finland will carry on under a Centre led government
The nature of Finnish politics is somewhat confusing with even the Fins party the nearest thing to Ukip being described as as fiscally centre-left, socially conservative, a "centre-based populist party" or the "most left-wing of the non-socialist parties"
But the point is that even with no party close to the 101 the Finish government will be formed there will be no crisis . It might even see the Swedish Peoples Party entering government. again .
And yet in here UK a multi-party coalition seems to be impossible .
Although both the SNP and Plaid have said they will enter into coalition with Labour the London media treat this as spectra and indicate that it would be somehow undemocratic
But in all this talk of coalitions why haven;'t it been brought up that two of the parties who have already said they will continue with the Austerity programme , cuting the deficit and preserving the Union.
They worked together under"Better Together" for a Yes vote last years they may well find it convenient to work together "to save the UK from the anarchy of the SNP"
A Labour-Tory grand coalition as in Germany between the CDU and SDP.
Is it worth a bet.?
