HELSINKI Feb 12 (Reuters) - The following stocks may be affected by newspaper reports and other factors on Tuesday:

TELIASONERA

The former CEO of partially state-owned airline SAS , Mats Jansson, will join the board of telecoms firm TeliaSonera, daily Svenska Dagbladet wrote.

The Swedish government, which owns around 37 percent of Telia, has indicated it wants most of the board replaced after an internal Telia report heavily criticised the company over its purchase of a 3G license in Uzbekistan.

The board's first task will be to pick a new CEO for Telia after Lars Nyberg resigned over the Uzbek affair.

SVD said current board members Per-Arne Sandstrom, a former Ericsson executive, and Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, previously CEO of Nokia, will remain on the board.
