Sauli Niinistö and Pekka Haavisto
In the 2nd round we have
- Mr Niinistö representing the well off people, the right wing and the corporate Finland. Then we have
- Mr Haavisto from the green party representing all the minorities.
These two gentlemen are probably as far from each other as the sun is from the moon! – I’d vote for Mr Niinistö but either Niinistö or Haavisto being elected doesn’t really have an effect to my level of happiness! I’d still be happy.
Our current President, Mrs Tarja Halonen, has been the President for 12 years (my daughter’s whole life! She’s so used to it that she’d like another woman President).
The election day for the 2nd round voting is February 5th and the new President will start his work on March 1st 2012.
