Yes they did. The Finns party was only 0,2% behind and gained 22 more seats. They were the biggest winner.

Since this wasn’t a presidential election, Rinne will not become president. He’ll become prime minister, unless he fails at negotiating a government cabinet. In that case, next up would be the party with second-most representatives, where the difference is just one between SDP and True Finns. CNN also got it wrong, since True Finns is a nationalistic centrist party, not right wing at all, which is where the national coalition party is. Not “right-wing” as-in national socialism either; that legacy belongs to the winner SDP, into which national socialist parties were merged into after World War 2, when national socialist parties were made illegal.

That’s messed up when less than a quarter of votes gets touted as a win.

that's what you get, when you don't have a forced 2 party system. you get a wide range of political opinions to choose from

wide range??? LOLOOOL it's really not that diff from 2 party because those parties for the most part have very little difference in them most of the time. but it would be nice to have a third option in USA.

So the three main parties yielded a collected vote of less than 50%? This seems strange to an American but I would love to see Dem and Rep candidates get these numbers. A real democracy allows for individuals to vote and not political parties.

58.1% of eligible voters cast a ballot in the last presidential election. Slightly less than the election prior to that. Does ~8% really make that big a difference?

what I'm saying is that the rest of Finnish voters didn't vote on party lines. I'd love to see Americans to be less partisan and vote beyond the two main parties that are corrupting our elections.

This is why America’s two party system works the best

Works best to do what? Stifle debate? Create an ideological divide that keeps government gridlocked? Stop bi-partisan co-operation that is the foundation of the American congressional process? Force compromise to be characterized as treason?
