Future gov't cabinet to include True Finns, National Coalition, Social Democrats

It was reported in Ilta-Sanomat today that probable future Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen considers a Coalition government including his National Coalition party, the True Finns and the Social Democratic party the "most likely basis for government."

Lord have mercy on us all
 This coalition, billed the 'blue-red-neck' government by the Finnish public is expected to be announced tomorrow as Jyrki Katainen is holding a speech to the National Coalition party leadership. True Finn leader Timo Soini said today that his candidates for ministerial positions would most likely include former MP Raimo Vistbacka, with 24 years of experience from parliament. Other candidates whose names have been floated around include a former bodybuilder Ritva Elomaa, and blogger and popular racist Jussi Halla-Aho.
