Finland's 'rock star' PM Sanna Marin looks set to LOSE Sunday's general election as she trails behind right-wing anti-immigration
Finnish politics could dramatically shift to the far-Right on Sunday as an anti-immigration party aims to replace Sanna Marin's Social Democrats Party.
The 'rock star' prime minister, who took office in 2019 as the world's youngest PM at 34, is Finland's most popular leader this century, polls show.
However, latest figures put the mother-of-one's centre-Left SDP in third place behind the anti-immigration and nationalist Finns Party and the centre-Right National Coalition Party, which held on to a thin lead.
'It is a very exciting situation and it's hard to say at the moment which party will be the biggest on election day,' Tuomo Turja of the polling firm Taloustutkimus told AFP.
A win for the far-Right Finns Party, and a far-Right prime minister, would be a first in Finland - but the party has previously served in government in a coalition. It currently looks set to top its record 19 per cent from the 2011 election.
