Provisional Results Show Stubb as the Winner of Presidential Election in Finland

Alexander Stubb Secures Election as Finland’s New President

Alexander Stubb has been declared the winner of the second round of the Finnish presidential elections, with 51.6 percent of the votes, according to results from 99 percent of the provisional count. His rival, Pekka Haavisto, achieved 48.4 percent of the votes, which was 111,000 votes behind Stubb. Stubb promised to give his best every day and highlighted the work of outgoing president Sauli Niinist√∂ over the last twelve years. He also proposed to continue in Niinist√∂’s line and pointed to the beginning of a new era. The Finnish president is elected by direct universal suffrage for a six-year term and no head of state can be elected for two consecutive terms due to this rule, which means that President Sauli Niinist√∂ was not able to run for re-election.
