Juha Sipila Will Not Contest Party Chairman Election

Juha Sipila, the recently resigned prime minister of Finland has said that the support for his party has been declining and if it remains the same he will not be part of the chairman election next year. He has been part of three party coalition government from 2015 and his resignation as prime minister came as a surprise for many after the failure of health care plan.

The health care plan was successful during previous governments as it was mainly useful for the aging population. During an interview Sipila told a recent survey showed just 14 percent support to the Center Party and with this he cannot be taking part in the 2020 party chairman election. The parliamentary election in the country will be held next month and the results are expected to have a major impact on Juha Sipila. A survey also showed a decline among supporters for Center Party in the upcoming election and rising popularity for the opposition party.
