Social Democrats clinch narrow victory in Finland’s election

The Social Democratic Party has won a narrow victory in Finland’s general election with 17.7% of the vote.

But the far right Finns party was close behind on 17.5% while the center party of outgoing prime minister, Julia Sipila saw its support crash by a third to 13.8%.

But with the vote split and no party winning by a clear margin, it may be hard to build a workable coalition.
