Finland has a new government

Timo Uotila's current affairs report from Finland 5.6.19

The government led by Antti Rinne will have 19 ministers. Of these, the Social Democrats get 7 portfolios, the Centre 5,  the Greens 3, the Left alliance 2 and the Swedish peoples party 2 portfolios.

The Finnish authorities have a difficult problem with the the wives and children of Finnish men who went to Syria to fight with ISIS. Now the wives and children are in prison camps. The women should face court for possible war crimes but the children need  help and should be rescued. At the same time it would be cruel to separate the children from their mothers.

An international survey shows that Finland is the World's third best country for children. Ahead of Finland are Singapore and Sweden. Some of the criteria in the comparison were children's safety, health care and education.
