Finnish PM Stubb, a star whose lustre has faded

Finnish voters say Prime Minister Alexander Stubb has failed to push through his policies during his 10 months in office, according to recent opinion pollsPrime Minister Alexander Stubb has long been one of Finland’s most popular and dynamic politicians but voters are expected to punish him in Sunday’s election for failing to revive a slumping economy. Stubb, the head of the conservative National Coalition Party, has only headed the left-right government since June, when he took over from Finland’s other political prodigy Jyrki Katainen, who left to join the European Commission. A “modern leader for a modern country”, Sweden’s former foreign minister Carl Bildt tweeted when Stubb took over the government. His coalition government’s popularity has consistently declined since he took power: only 11 percent of Finns consider the government has done “good” or “very good” work, according to a poll in Finland’s paper of reference Helsingin Sanomat published a week before the election.
