  • GOVERNMENT
    The Prime Minister is elected by Parliament and thereafter formally appointed to office by the President of the Republic. The President appoints the other ministers in accordance with a proposal from the Prime Minister.
     
    Before the Prime Minister is elected, the groups represented in Parliament negotiate on the political programmed and composition of the Government. On the basis of these negotiations, and having heard the views of the Speaker of Parliament, the President informs Parliament of the nominee for Prime Minister. The nominee is elected Prime Minister if supported by more than half the votes cast in an open vote in Parliament

  • Communication
    In Finland, we can find characteristics of both communication styles: In a conversation, the important is what they are saying and not the context, only the result of thinking is expressed (high contact). They do not interrupt each other when they are talking (listening and to be silent are important).
  • The Christian religion in Finland is divided into two schools of evangelical thought. The two Christian churches are the Orthodox Finland church and the Lutheran Finland church. A majority of the population of Finland follows the Lutheran church.
