It’s a privilege to spend the best weather months on a lake in Finland. And there’s this:
HELSINKI — Finland’s new center-left coalition government has been sworn in, with the country’s first Social Democratic prime minister in 16 years assuming office along with a climate issue-focused Cabinet where women are in the majority.
The 19-member Cabinet of Prime Minister Antti Rinne — a former finance minister and trade union leader — was approved Thursday in the 200-seat Eduskunta legislature, after which President Sauli Niinisto appointed it.
Eleven of the Cabinet members are female, reflecting Nordic gender equality in the nation’s politics.
