Yle’s monthly poll shows a continued uptick in support for the Social Democrats following the transition of power at the head of government from Antti Rinne to Sanna Marin.

The SDP’s support now stands at 16.6 percent of respondents, up 0.6 of a percentage point since last month.

That remains below the 17.7 percent of the vote they recorded in the 2019 election, but the figure has grown three months in a row after the change in Prime Minister.

The Centre Party also showed a rise in support this month from a historic low of 10.8 percent to 12.4 percent of respondents.

The Finns Party still leads the poll with the support of 22,4 percent of respondents, down 0.9 percent of a percentage point on last month.

Taloustutkimus interviewed 3,409 people in February, and the margin of error is +-1.4 percentage points.

EDIT - This story originally stated that power switched from Marin to Rinne, when in fact the transition was the other way round.
