Matti Putkonen proposes that the Social Democrats (SDP) should pick Timo Soini as their presidential candidate.
This is rather funny but understandable. The leadership crisis in SDP is severe. Who can SDP choose to run for president? The office of the President of Republic of Finland is an important symbolic position, even if the political power has been mostly taken away and given to the parliament.
Timo Soini is extremely popular among the general population. Choosing him as the candidate for SDP is probably the only way to avoid an extremely embarrassing situation where Soini, leader of a fringe party, would get more votes than the candidate of SDP, the former mighty maker or policy for the whole country.
