Odi might be a little disappointed by these results..

We might be very disappointed in Alberta after today.


Center-left party wins Finland parliamentary election

Finland's parliamentary election results show the Social Democratic Party (SDP) winning with 17.7% of the votes, according to CNN's local affiliate Italehti.

The tight race saw the anti-immigration right-wing Finns Party come in second place with 17.5%, while their coalition partners the National Coalition Party, and the Center Party scored 17% and 13.8% respectively, Italehti reported.
According to Reuters, this is the first time in a century that no party has won more than 20% in an election, and coalition talks are likely to be protracted.
All centre-left and left-wing parties saw an increase in their vote, with the Green League coming n fifth with 11.5% of the vote, followed by the Left Alliance at 8.2%.
Between them, the three left-leaning parties should return 76 lawmakers, according to Italehti's estimates, short of a majority in Finland's 200-seat parliament, meaning a governing coalition will likely have to include one of the main centrist parties.
SDP Chairman Antti Rinne, as leader of the largest party, will have first shot at forming a government, and at becoming the first left-wing prime minister in Finland since 2003. In a speech Sunday, former union boss Rinne thanked party members for their hard campaign work.
"For the first time since 1999 we are the largest party in Finland ... SDP is the prime minister's party," he told supporters in central Helsinki, Reuters reported.

It will be a real balancing act to hold a coalition together.

I am disappointed by these results and I don't live in Finland. Odi thought it was a slam dunk for the right and so did I.

Our elections have a lot more spread than in some other countries..

60 seats out of 200 is about as high it can get.


The party with most seats, gets to try and form a government cabinet out of this patchwork quilt.


17,5% and 39 seats is a lot.. And it is a great victory..



Besides... SDP and Antti Rinne aint "left-wing" as you know it..

Antti Rinne is a former union boss and worked at a timber yard in his youth.


He isnt like american left-wingers who do not know the problems of simple people.

There is no socialist alternative in North America. The so called left here are rich prog globalists and their shills. They have declared war on working people.

It seems that there is no middle-ground...


You either vote for the conservatives or hand over your balls to the lefties.

Israel has coalition governments. I prefer it to the lack of choice in Canada and America. There is no political right on this continent.

The left in Israel wants to join the EU. I like free trade with EU, but I don't want Israel surrendering it's sovereignty to Brussels.

First things first..

You have to respect muslim rights and let them annihilate Israel.


If you retaliate or put up any kind of a fight... You are not respecting their rights.

That sounds like Meretz. That party loves Muslims and hates Israel.

The EU would have a say in the border terms for Israel and Palestine.

To hell with Brussels bureaucracy. Our tiny country would be swamped with third world refugees like we were before.
