Finnish government wins confidence vote as expected

HELSINKI, June 24 (BestGrowthStock) – The new Finnish government of
Prime Minister Mari Kiviniemi won a parliamentary confidence
vote on Thursday as expected.

The Nordic country’s four party coalition government, which
holds a clear majority in parliament, won the vote 118-66 with
15 parliamentarians absent.

The vote ends a government reshuffle process that started
last Friday when then prime minister Matti Vanhanen stepped down
as planned. Kiviniemi won a parliament vote on Tuesday to become
prime minister and was sworn in later that day.
