Minister of Finance Matti Vanhanen does not want to be the chairman of the center, says Mauseudun Tulevaisuus. According to the newspaper, Vanhanen also has no interest in running in the presidential election.

There will be a party meeting in the center in early September.

Katri Kulmuni, the chairman of the center, resigned from the position of the Minister of Finance at the beginning of June due to the communication training jupa. According to the data of the Ministry of Finance, the amount of the communication training bills was approximately EUR 56,000. Kulmuni said on Friday that he had paid the training expenses to the ministry.

Vanhanen replaced Kulmun as Minister of Finance from the position of Speaker of Parliament.
