Election season is well underway in Finland as Yle’s candidate election machine opens to voters on Wednesday. The website asks for responses to a series of questions on public policy, and then compares the answers to those of candidates to find the best fit.
In all some 1,600 candidates, have answered the questions in Yle’s election machine and can be offered as potential ‘matches’ to curious voters.
Meanwhile around 1,800 candidates, or some 90 percent of the 2,000 standing in total, have undergone a four-minute grilling by Yle journalists for the ‘election gallery’ of video interviews.
Yle News is interviewing each party leader in English, and you can watch those videos via our website.
