Finnish PM tenders resignation


HELSINKI: Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb tendered his government’s resignation on Tuesday after its election defeat earlier this month, the president’s office said. President Sauli Niinisto “accepted Stubb’s resignation and asked him to stay on in a caretaker role until a new prime minister has been named,” a statement said. Niinisto then formally tasked prime minister-elect Juha Sipila, of the Center Party, with building a new government. Sipila told reporters Tuesday he hoped to announce his coalition partners next week, and have a government program and cabinet in place in about a month.
