HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland’s Centre Party, part of the ruling five-party coalition, said on Tuesday it had lost confidence in Social Democrat Prime Minister Antti Rinne, in a move that will likely force him to resign.
“This was third time we told him, we told him twice yesterday and now,” Antti Kurvinen, the party’s parliamentary group leader told reporters.
Finnish broadcaster YLE, citing unnamed sources, reported earlier that Rinne would resign later in the day.
