All 200 seats in Parliament
101 seats needed for a majority
Parliamentary elections will be held in Finland on 2 April 2023, or earlier if the parliament is dissolved ahead of schedule, and will elect members of parliament for the 2023–2027 convocation.
The former prime minister, Antti Rinne, resigned from his post due to a scandal regarding the Finnish Postal Service (Posti). Rinne's Social Democratic Party of Finland elected a 34-year-old MP from the province of Pirkanmaa, Sanna Marin, to replace him. Marin took office on 10 December 2019.
During the COVID-19 pandemic in Finland, the Social Democratic Party of Prime Minister Sanna Marin initially saw a sharp rise in popularity, and the Finns Party, leading polls before the pandemic, conversely saw a dip. By April 2021, the Finns Party have resurged, having overtaken the Social Democrats in polls and placed first in all representative polls conducted between January and July 2021.[a] After the National Coalition Party performed surprisingly strong in municipal elections in June 2021 with the Finns Party performing worse than pre-election polling indicated, the latter saw a decline in their popularity, falling behind the National Coalition and the Social Democrats.
The 200 members of the Parliament of Finland (Eduskunta) were elected using open list proportional representation in 13 multi-member constituencies, with seats allocated according to the D'Hondt method. The number of elected representatives is proportional to the population in the district six months prior to the elections. Åland has single member electoral district and its own party system.
